AJ Pero Having An Influence On Adrenaline Mob
. (Classic Rock) Adrenaline Mob frontman Russell Allen says drummer AJ Pero is a pleasure to spend time with on the road and that he's impressed everyone involved with the group since he took over from Mike Portnoy.
Twisted Sister drummer Pero is joined in supergroup Adrenaline Mob by Symphony X's Allen, guitarist Mike Orlando and bass player Erik Leonhardt.
Allen tells JoeDaly.net: "AJ is the kind of guy who you just love to be on tour with. Let's put it this way, he's been around forever, he's played bigger shows than anybody that's ever been in our band.
"Twisted Sister was a huge, huge act and they still play headlining festivals in Europe. At the end of our shows, do you know what he's doing? He's helping the local crews load the trailer. That's AJ Pero. There's no rock star sh*t with him, he's a man's man, he's a hard-working guy and I've got nothing but respect for him.
"He brings that sort of attitude on the road. So nothing really gets to him. Nothing gets him down that he's such a rock in so many ways. He's my enforcer - he makes it happen."
Pero's attitude is also rubbing off on Allen, the singer says. He adds: "I've learned a lot from him and he teaches me to be patient, which is not always easy in this life and especially in this business." Read more here.
