Billy RosE


Billy Rose has been playing drums since he was 4 years old, when he first sat behind his cousin’s drum set while his uncle played Beatles records for him to drum along to. It was then that his love for both the drums and The Beatles was born, and it has followed him up until today. Billy has spent the last 15 years playing drums as well as electric guitar and bass in various original and cover bands, and has dabbled in every genre from rock and heavy metal to funk and jazz. Since forming the Newspaper Taxis with Donovan in 2011, Billy has enjoyed playing the part of “Ringo,” and might even try to sing lead on another song one of these days.
