Wisconsin-born percussionist Wally Ingram is the rock world’s version of Kevin Bacon & there aren’t too many degrees of separation between him and just about every star on stage over the past decade or so. A frightening battle with cancer forced Wally to step away from a magical time on the road with Eric Burdon and the Animals but he’s back, healthy, happy and soaring after a massive outpouring of love and support from family, fans and friends and again playing percussion with longtime friend Sheryl Crow on the world tour in support of her incredible new Detours CD.

If ever there were a drummer in demand enough to be cloned, it would be Wally! He’s been a favorite of everyone from Sheryl Crow and Eric Burdon to Jackson Browne, Anders Osbourne, Bonnie Raitt, David Lindley (with whom he and fans alike enjoyed a long collaboration), James Taylor, Warren Zevon, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Jennifer Wanres, John Trudell, Tracy Chapman, Crowded House and was one of the members of the popular Grammy-nominated band Timbuk3.

When not on tour with any one (or two!) of those legendary artists, Wally revels in playing with his good friends Dave Schools, Jerry Joseph and Danny Louis in Stockholm Syndrome and also with his Alektrophobia partner Eric McFadden.
