Nick Oshiro (born July 29, 1978) is an American musician, best known as the former drummer of the industrial metal band Static-X.[1] He has previously played with the South African post-grunge and alternative metal band Seether. He started out with a drumkit made by his father as he stated in an interview with Tama.[citation needed] It was made of pots and pans, of which his father made a whole kit from. Already at the age of nine, he wanted to be a rockstar after seeing a Whitesnake video. He then created a large following in his home town of Las Vegas, Nevada. Leaving Seether in 2003, he joined Static-X as a touring drummer but eventually became a full-time member. Oshiro uses a Tama drumkit (it is a Starclassic Maple in Blue Galaxy Fade), Sabian cymbals, Vater drumsticks and Remo drumheads. Some of his influences are Abe Cunningham, Morgan Rose and Tim Alexander.[citation needed]




Josh Freese actually played drums on this album, as Oshiro was not in the band during the recording.
