Feeling a bit camera shy


DRIVER was formed in 1989 when Birmingham area musicians Guitarist Mick Foxx, David St. James (Rival) and Bassist Mike Gillespie (Graphix) grew tired of playing cover tunes. They recruited Drummer, Paul Greene and Guitarist, Raj Jones (Big Trouble) then began writing and developing the DRIVER sound. The band released a 6 song effort titled "Screaming Thru the Wire" that sold all 1,500 printed copies.

Paul decided to fulfill his commitment to his cover band and Drummer Tony Mason (Ally Cat) joined the band to fill the void until Paul returned 1 year later. 

1991 saw the departure of St. James for personal reasons. The unique and wide-ranging vocals of JT Sober were ushered into the band bringing a dynamic sound, adding to the powerful guitar attack of Foxx and Jones. 

1993 saw big changes when Foxx was forced to put the guitar down for medical reasons and the band when into a 19 year hibernation. 

2012 saw the return of DRIVER with the same 5 guys that walked off the stage together in '93 and quickly re-established its thunderous sound. 

In 2017 the band released 5 new songs tunes that can be purchased on iTunes and Google Play Music sites and apps.  They can also be streamed through Spotify and other services. 

Four more songs were released in December of 2018.  These can also be purchased on iTunes, Google Play Music, Amazon and several other sites.  Streaming the songs through Spotify is also available.
