Timothy DiDuro (born August 2, 1971) is a former drummer for Skid Row, Slaughter and is now the current drummer for the rock band Pipestone.

Biography[edit]

Born in Geneva, New York, DiDuro learned to play drums at age 5. He played with various local bands during high school, including a band called "Madden." He moved to Orlando, Florida in 1991 and played with Andrew "Duck" MacDonald in the band Playground for 5 years.

He joined The Kill in 1997; in 1998, the Kill won a contest called "Kick Start Your Career," [1] which was a Battle of the Bands-type competition that the band Mötley Crüe was sponsoring; one winner in each city got to open for the Mötley Crüe show- the Kill opened in Orlando. The Kill also won the 1998 Orlando Music Awards for best Metal Band.[2] They released one album [3] on Forbidden Records in 1998. He then played with Brizz (one of the original founding member of the band Lyte Funky Ones[LFO]) from 2001-2003.

In early 2004, he replaced Skid Row's drummer Phil Varone, who had abruptly left the band, citing personal reasons.[4] He also appeared in the Skid Row video "Ghost." In late 2004, he auditioned for Slaughter and played until 2011, but he still remains their temporary touring drummer.

He has also played with Vince Neil, and Mark Slaughter's band Scrap Metal. Scrap Metal consists of Mark Slaughter and other platinum-selling singers such as Gunnar Nelson (Nelson) and Eric Martin (Mr. Big).[5]

Timbo is currently playing with Pipestone, which is a five piece heavy rock band from the Florida area. Collectively the band members have had 5 number one radio hits and have toured the United States extensively with other projects. The band is currently recording their first CD with producer Brett Hestla (Dark New Day/Framing Hanley) which is slated for release later this year.
