What happened to Mitch Guindon?

*Updated Oct 2012 with correct information by Mitch Guindon* Mitch Guindon played with Canadian rock band Nickelback from 1997-1998 while working at Ayotte Drums in Vancouver, BC which is also where Nickelback's first drummer Brandon Kroeger worked at the time. Other notable drummers working at Ayotte Drums in 1998 were Chris Crippin (Bif Naked, Hedley), Ian Browne (Matthew Good, No Sinner) and Adam Drake (Art Bergmann, Holly McNarland). Mitch Guindon does not appear on any Nickelback recordings but did tour western Canada several times and was in a music video for the song "Fly" from the album "Curb". Mitch Guindon was replaced by drummer Ryan Vikedal in 1998 just prior to the recording of the album "The State". There are few pictures of Mitch Guindon playing with Nickelback aside from some old promotional material and fan photos. From 1998 to 2007 Mitch Guindon returned to his hometown on Vancouver Island and resumed his former career as an automotive technician with a specialty in high performance import cars. Drumming was less of a focus during this time though he did continue to play regularly. In 2008 Mitch Guindon moved to Fort St. John, BC where he found an impressive music scene thriving in this beautiful northern community and quickly resumed playing drums for several local singer songwriters such as Dayna Manning, Ryan Hennessey, Ryan Sebastiano, The Barracudas, Twin Peaks, and others. He also began studying cajon with renowned drummer and percussionist Dave Tolley (Xavier Rudd, Nine Mile, Brian Macmillan). Dave Tolley and Mitch Guindon together with drummer Mark Bodner began development of a professional line of hand made cajon drums and called the company Mitchslap Percussion. 2011 brought Mitch Guindon back to Vancouver Island where he continues to specialize in high performance cars at 5252 Motorsports in Victoria, BC and can be found playing with recording artists Ryan McMahon, Tara MacLean and others.
