Drummer STiX is the founder of this collective of Reggae heavyweights. After experiencing a performance of Bob Marley & The Wailers in the Houtrusthallen in The Hague, on his 16th birthday, 13 may 1977, drummer STiX knew what he wanted in life: To play Reggae music! He began as a Reggae DJ on an illegal radio station. Then STiX started drumming in The Knoflocks, soon he was invited by the charismatic singer King Size, to join his band King Size and The Walkman.
In the 80’s The Walkman have even performed with Reggae legend “Desmond Dekker” as his backing band called “The Walkman”.
