Hi, thanks for stoppin' by.

I've been the new drummer in KORN since October '07. We did 2 massive world tours the last 2 years. check out KORN.com for live and behind the scenes video clips from them.

Before KORN, I was the drummer in ARMY OF ANYONE, which features multi-platinum artists

Robert and Dean DeLeo from STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and Richard Patrick from FILTER.

Our debut CD, which we co-produced with Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Jane's Addiction,

Kiss, Alice Cooper), is out now. "Goodbye" is the single, check it out at the top of this page. The video for it is on the left side. Click here

to visit the official Army Of Anyone site.

I was in the DAVID LEE ROTH Band for 8 years from '97-'05, which was an amazing

experience. We toured the globe 5 times and made 2 cool CDs. Diamond Dave is, by

far, one of the greatest frontmen that ever lived! I've also had the honor to

record, perform and tour with some other great bands and artists in my career,

here's some of my favs: Jonathan Davis and the SFA's, Billy Sheehan (DLR, Mr. Big, Steve Vai), Shenkar (Frank Zappa, Peter Gabriel, Jonathan Davis), The Nixons, Jake

E. Lee (Ozzy, Badlands. my first tour in '94 "Wicked Alliance"),

Hideous Sun Demons, Doug Pinnick (King's X), John 5 (Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), James LoMenzo

(Black Label Society, Megadeth), Rafael Moreira (Pink, Christina

Aguilera), Slash (G 'n R, Velvet Revolver), Seal, Kirk Hammett

(Metallica), Zakk Wylde (Ozzy, BLS), Toshi Hiketa (DLR, Hideous

Sun Demons), Todd Jensen (Alice Cooper, DLR), John JD DeServio (BLS), The Boston Pops

Orchestra, Tracy G (Dio, WWIII), Driven, Zac Maloy, Edgar Winter, Goaded,

Freak Power Ticket, Coma, Wicked Alliance, Matt Kramer (Coma, Saigon

Kick), Medicine Wheel, The Howling Iguanas, Tony Fredianelli (Third Eye

Blind), Toby Knapp (Onward), Arcade (w/ Stephen Pearcy, I toured

with them in '95), Ricky Wolking (Edgewater, Nixons), Brian Young

(DLR), Michael Lee Firkins, Doug Aldrich, George Lynch, Mandy Lion (WW

III, Wicked Alliance), Greg Chaisson (Badlands, Sircle of Silence),

Scott Bush (Dolt, Nixons), Keisuke Nishimoto (HSD Japan, Kelly

Simonz), Jeff Scott Soto (Yngwie, Soul Sirkus), Sean Dailey, Darren

Housholder, 9.0, various Perfect World Entertainment bands such as Metal Shop,

Boogie Knights, Anthem, Spazmatics and Atomic Doggs. I do a lot of recording

sessions, including stuff for tv and movies and have played over 1700 shows,

played on over 40 CDs, bla bla bla. But enough about me, here's some more

stuff about me.

I have an instructional DVD out in stores now (Guitar Center, Sam Ash, Pro Drum

Shops, etc.) for all you drummers and drummers to be. It has a bunch of lessons

including double bass, warm-ups, drum fills and motion exercises in one DVD with

a companion booklet. It also features Billy Sheehan and Toshi Hiketa in the

performance section. Check out my blog (above) for some reviews of it and my

site for details: RAYLUZIER.com and halleonard.com.

You can also see clips of it below. Sabian, ddrum, DW, Remo and Pro-Mark are

my sponsors for the drum clinics that I do (including NAMM shows, PASIC

conventions and "in stores"), which are posted on my site.

I graduated from the Musicians Institute in Hollyweird, CA in '89 and was a

teacher there at P.I.T. from '92-'01. Check out mi.edu. I grew up on a farm

outside of Pittsburgh, PA in a small town called West Newton and I've been

playing drums since I was 5. I also play a bit of guitar and bass just to write,

have fun and record in my home studio, which is where I spend most of my time,

around touring. I travel A LOT and love it! I also go out to eat every single day (except when I'm at my parents house). I love fine dining.

The tune "Mummy" on this page is from my side instrumental band,

Hideous Sun Demons, which I put together with DLR band members James LoMenzo and

Toshi Hiketa. Check out the HSD myspace page for more info and to hear more

tunes : myspace.com/HIDEOUSSUNDEMONS.

The tune "Just Another Humanoid" is from Billy Sheehan's third solo CD that I played on "Holy Cow!". go pick that one up! The "ARMY OF ANYONE compilation" is from one of my favorite bands that I've ever been in . Visit ARMYOFANYONE.com

for more info. The tune "Flys & Ghosts" is part of a side project that I wrote with my dear friend Sean Dailey. Scott Bush is playing guitar and my other Bro, Ricky Wolking, played all the bass on it. I wrote a whole record like this, it's just taking forever to finish!

On the left of this profile are some of my favorite records that I played on the cover for more info or to buy them.

So as you can see, I completely breathe, eat, sleep and live music. oh, and my

last name's pronounced "Lose-Ear" ;)

See Ray In Action!
