Another fellow drummer, Tanner Byrom, said he was heartsick after hearing the news Monday of Pierce’s passing.
“I loved Kerry,” said Byrom, who has performed in numerous Bakersfield bands, including Big House and the Byrom Brothers.
Pierce was about three years older, and Byrom said he looked up to him.
“He could play ‘Wipeout,'” he remembered. “He was the baddest drummer in the world as far as I was concerned. I wanted to be like Kerry.”BY STEVEN MAYER firstname.lastname@example.org Jul 25, 2017
