Dan has had the humbling privilege to work with: FLUDD, Honeymoon Suite, Alannah Myles, Mike Reno (Loverboy), Alan Frew (Glass Tiger), Jimi Jamison (Survivor), Kenny Maclean (Platinum Blonde), Gord Deppe (The Spoons), Rob Laidlaw, Bobby Cameron, Greg Godovitz (GODDO), Gino Scarpelli (GODDO), Jeff Jones (Red Ryder), Jim Gilmour (SAGA), Jimmy Crighton (SAGA), Ian Crighton (SAGA), Russ Dwarf (The Killer Dwarfs, Hardroad), Nick Walsh (Famous Underground, Slik Toxik), Dale Russell (The Guess Who).
Watching his father (James Todd) play drums in Church every Sunday definitely lit a fire under Dan. His true ambition was to become a professional drummer. Early in his career, Dan’s performance style was deeply rooted in Hard rock and Funk. He drew most of his inspiration from drummers such as Jeff Pocaro, Neil Peart, Bobby Blotzer, Rod Morgenstein, Scott Rockenfield and John Bonham.
After realizing there was nothing for Dan musically in KW, he relocated to Toronto, Ontario in 1992, and was taken under the wing of Randy Cooke (Lee Aaron, Rik Emmett, Kim Mitchell, Ringo Starr, Smashmouth), who Dan is still very thankful too.
As time goes on, Dan has been inspired by drummers such as Morgan Rose, Paul Delong, Creighton Doane, Sean Kilbride, Chad Szeliga, Zoltan Chaney, Rich Redmond, Dean Castronovo, Tommy Aldridge, Chris Sutherland, Gavin Harrison, Ray Luzier, Rik Gratton (Big Respect), Glen Milchem, Greg Morrow, Hillary Jones and Atom Willard. The list will forever grow as Dan continues to learn.
Dan Todd shows much enthusiasm and enjoys the music he does with all the groups he has been a part of. He is a great inspiration for many musicians.
