Brooks Wackerman cut his teeth, so to speak, on the drums. His interest in the percussion instrument was piqued by his musically adept family. Chuck Wackerman, his father, who has mastered about every instrument, has played trumpet and drum in quartets in Las Vegas and around Orange County. Brook's brother, Chad, 32, used to be the drummer in the rock group Men at Work, but now joins brothers Bob, 29, who plays the bass, and John, 27, another drummer, as professional session musicians.
