Early life

Crocker was born in Anchorage, Alaska, so little is known about his early life. In 1994, his parents sent him to Sugar Land, Texas to study at Sugar Land Community Colllege. In 1995, a ten-year old Luis O'Connor approached Crocker about starting a hair metal band. Crocker said of the experience, "I had no idea how to play drums, but I didn't think I would be any worse than Lars, so I gave it a try."


Crocker drummed in Sexxx and Rubber Apparatuses from 1995-2007. He made pretty much no money during this time period.


In 2007, Crocker found himself with no band and no job. He moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico and began working at the local Burger King.


On the night of June 8th, 2009, Crocker was beaten to death by a dancer in a nightclub. The dancer was forced to pay $20 to Burger King as compensation.


Crocker is known for having a style that is able to suit his band well. In the case of the bands he played in, he hit random drums, made a racket, and was only able to keep a 207/4 time signature.
