Marco Minnemann in Aarhus, 2016

Marco Minnemann (born 24 December 1970) is a German drummer,[1] composer and multi-instrumentalist. He lives in San Diego, California.

Marco Minnemann has published a number of solo CDs. On most of them he performs all instruments and vocals.[2] He is known for developing a very advanced drum technique called interdependence allowing him to play various patterns with each of his feet or hands, and has published several instructional books describing this concept.[2]

Minnemann provided additional guest voices in the Titmouse-animated series Metalocalypse on Adult Swim.

In 2011, he was the runner-up in a series of auditions for Dream Theater after Mike Portnoy left the band in 2010.[3]

Marco also performs with several other groups. He was a member of the German Crossover band Freaky Fukin Weirdoz from 1992-98, with whom he recorded 4 albums, and from 1998-99 he was a member of the German Rock band H-Blockx and recorded the album "Fly Eyes" with them. Since 2011[4] he has been a member of Steven Wilson's studio band and, on occasion, his touring band as well. He is a member of the rock group The Aristocrats[5] and has performed with Joe Satriani since 2013.[6] Currently he is also the drummer for The Mute Gods, which is a project of Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo, Steven Wilson Band) and appears on their album "Do Nothing Till You Hear from Me".

In late 2017 he joined a new prog supergroup, The Sea Within, with an album and tour announced for 2018.[7]
