Billy "Thunder" Mason

  QwikStix Reference:   QwikStix User


  Bio:   Ladies and gentlemen, on drums, Billy "Thunder" Mason. If you have ever heard Tim perform live, this nickname should come as no surprise. Sticks in hand, always at the ready, drummer Billy Mason is proud to be a part of the McGraw music machine.

But his musical path was not always so clear. "My first instrument? Uh . . . the accordion!" he reluctantly admits. "I was around five, but it was too heavy." It did not take long for the young Billy to tire of the lumbering walk up the stairs, dragging his accordion to his lesson.
By the age of eight, Billy had reached for the drumsticks. His father played as well, but Billy taught himself most of what he learned. Still, his dad always made his drums available, and the inspiration that he provided helped to motivate the aspiring young drummer.

  Current Gig:   Tim McGraw




  Comment:   "He's always a kid at heart. He wants everybody to be happy. On this record he was the rock that kept everybody together. He always puts on a great show, and I don't think he had any overdubs at all on this record . . . He was the star of the record. At the end of the session we all stood up and gave him a standing ovation." - Tim McGraw
