Nick Oshiro (born July 29, 1978) is an American musician, best known as the current drummer of the industrial metal band Static-X. He has previously played with the South African post grunge band Seether. He started out with a drumkit made by his father as he stated in an interview with Tama. It was made of pots and pans, of which his father made a whole kit from. Already at the age of nine, he wanted to be a rockstar after seeing a Whitesnake video. Leaving Seether in 2003, he joined Static-X as a touring drummer but eventually became a full-time member. While on tour on April 11 2007 in Abilene, Texas he broke his hand and was back in four weeks. Nick Oshiro uses a Tama drumkit (it's a Starclassic Maple in Blue Galaxy Fade), Sabian cymbals, Vater drumsticks and Remo drumheads. Some of his influences are Abe Cunningham, Morgan Rose and Tim Alexander.
