From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jim Macpherson (born June 23, 1966) is a United States percussionist who has played with well-known rock acts, including Guided by Voices, The Breeders, The Moping Swans, The Raging Mantras, Killjoys and The Amps. Jim also played in Kattie Dougherty's and bassist Sharon Gavlick's project band Real Lulu, among a collection of featured Dayton, OH drummers.

At the end of Guided by Voices 2000 European tour, Jim left the band to spend more time with his family. GBV vocalist/songwriter Robert Pollard was disappointed in Jim's resignation, though not unsurprised as Pollard himself remained the band's only original member throughout many lineup changes.

Drumming since the age of fourteen, Jim was involved heavily in drum corps. His firm foundation in technique has allowed him to expand on traditional rudiments, an element of his style that is particularly signature.

Although drumming has long been a passion, it was mostly a hobby for the full-time handyman. Fortunately, The Breeders provided his most popular gig, introducing Macpherson's talent to the largest of previous audiences- largely as the opening act for Nirvana's 1992 European tour.

The Breeders' Title TK album did not include Macpherson (Jose Medeles backed the Breeders studio/tour).
