The drummer for the Hoppers is none other than the youngest son of Claude and Connie, Michael. He is the most recent drummer, but not the only one the group has had. Before Michael, older brother Dean played the drums as well. Mike does a great job with it, however, and really looks like he is getting into it on stage.
Besides playing the drums, Mike also plays the bass guitar and has an instructional DVD available for other would-be musicians to study.
When not on the road, Mike enjoys flying airplanes. He also plays around in the recording studio with his brother.
