The baby-faced stick-wielding rhythm mesiter, that drives from the back seat, had a harrowing journey to take over the helm of RMG tempos. Brought up in Johannesburg, Francois become aware of the infamous women of Round Mountain whilst searching the web in a dark room late at night on the African continent. Inspired and intrigued, he set sail for the creek at the foot of Round Mountain in a 15ft dinghy, drawn by a mystical power. Disaster struck when the tiny vessel overturned in a completely flat ocean off Cape Horn, made even more mysterious due to the fact he was heading in completely the wrong direction. Clinging to an empty tom-tom case and eating only drumsticks, he was eventually washed up on Christmas Island where he was brought up by prison guards as one of their own.
It was here that he learned to use soap and was given tattoos.
Francois is honoured to endorse SPAUN DRUMS
