Steve Forrest (Placebo)

Steve (born September 25, 1986 in Modesto, California) is the drummer with the band Placebo.

Before joining Placebo, Steve was drummer for the Ambient rock band Evaline. He announced his intention to leave Evaline in January 2007, but remained with the band throughout their 2007 United States tour.

During that tour, Evaline opened for Placebo, and Steve came to be acquainted with them. In 2008 he took the vacant seat of Steve Hewitt.

Unlike Placebo´s previous two drummers, Forrest plays right-handed, not left. Forrest also contributes vocals and rhythm guitar for the indie/soul band É Florentino. He is also the songwriter and front man for band Planes.
