He started playing drums at the age of 13. By
16, he was already touring the province of Quebec with
various rock and progressive bands. At 21, he discovered
Jazz Fusion, which allowed him to grow as a drummer. Nicolas
formed a jazz-fusion band covering jazz-fusion artists
of the day. He's also a drum teacher at a music school.
His first Genesis concert experience was the 1980 Duke
show at the Montreal Forum. He was immediately hooked
on the strong melodies, the heavy driven bass pedals and
the complex rhythm patterns.
