Regarding how he came to meet Roth, in Guitarist Magazine, Lowery relates that, "when I was little, my dream was to play with David Lee Roth. One day I was sitting at my friend's house and... I wonder[ed] what... Roth is doing now. [In 1997, Roth had just been let go from Van Halen for a second time in favor of Gary Cherone , and also penned a tongue-in-cheek memoir.]. I'm gonna call up his manager and see if he needs any songs." [6]

Bissonette also played on the theme songs to the television shows Friends , Just Shoot Me! and The Tracey Ullman Show . [4] [5]

Indeed, during the landing, Bissonette was yanked to safety by a fellow SEAL as the helicopter he was in crashed on landing at the compound.

Matt has started his professional career back in the 80's with jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson. Then he was part of the David Lee Roth band with Steve Vai and his brother Gregg on drums. He recorded on the multi platinum winner albums 'Skyscraper' (1988) then 'A Little Ain't Enough' (1991).

Not ever overplaying on a song isn't as easy as it seems, but Phil always finds the best groove for Radioheads music and adds interesting and intricate drum parts, earning him a place on our list.
