The drummer and percussionist for the New York based Alternative band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who originally started playing Garage Punk songs but drifted into the Alternative Dance scene. Some people may refer to him as "That other guy from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs" since he's not as well known as Karen or Nick, but he's an excellent drummer and deserves more credit. Apart from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs he has played or collaborated with various musicians rangeing from Oakley Hall to Mary Halvorson to The Seconds. He is a vegitarian, and also has a rare condition known as Synaesthesia, which allows him to see colours through music. He grew up in Long Island, New York and now lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York. He was once named the 50th best drummer of all time by Gigwise.
Brian Chase is an excellent drummer, hurrah!!!!
