Known for his rock solid beats and laid back style, drummer Bobby "Rock Eagle" Drake, is something of an enigma. At once quiet and reserved, he is also The Hold Steady member most likely to be involved in a ruckus. Bobby is famous for his contemplated violence against a poser band that shall remain nameless after the posers forbade THS from leaving their dressing room while the band was backstage. Also went with a shaved head at Lollapalooza after sporting a full beard and shaggy hairdo for the balance of the tour.
