Thomas Lang

Thomas Lang (born August 5, 1967 in Vienna, Austria) is a professional drummer, frequent drum clinician and a producer.

Thomas Lang was born in Vienna. He grew up in Stockerau, a small town in Austria. He lived in London for ten years and moved to Los Angeles in December 2006. He started playing the drums at the age of five, and after years of private lessons he attended the Vienna Conservatory of Music. Since then he has worked as an independent drummer. His work can also be heard on the solo albums Mediator and Something Along Those Lines.

In 2002, Meinl approached Remo to produce the Thomas Lang Practice Kit, after Lang stated, "When I travel it's hard for me to keep up with my practice because I worry about disturbing people in hotel rooms, or backstage".

Thomas has worked with such artists as Geri Halliwell, Robbie Williams, John Wetton, B*Witched, Bonnie Tyler, Billy Liesegang, The Clash, Falco, Steve Hackett, Nick Kershaw, Robert Fripp, Gianna Nannini, Lighthouse Family, Boyzone, Ronan Keating, Westlife, Kylie Minogue, Asia, Robert Trujillo, Ian Dury, The Blockheads, Cathy O'Meara, Save The Robots, The Vienna Art Orchestra and many more.
