Kenney Jones

Kenneth Thomas Jones (born 16 September 1948) is an English drummer best known for his work in the groups Small Faces, Faces, and the Who. Jones was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 as a member of Small Faces/Faces.

Zak Starkey

Zak Richard Starkey (born 13 September 1965) is an English rock drummer. He is the son of The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr (real name Richard Starkey), and has performed and recorded with English rock band The Who since 1996. He is also the third drummer to have appeared with English rock band Oasis. In 2020, he became the drummer for Casbah Club after the band reunited after a twelve-year hiatus. Other musicians and bands he has worked with include Johnny Marr, Paul Weller, The Icicle Works, The Waterboys, ASAP, The Lightning Seeds, John Entwistle and Sshh Liguz.

Sshh Liguz

Sharna Liguz, also known as Sshh Liguz, is an Australian artist and singer currently living in London, UK. She is a part of the music duo Sshh with musician Zak Starkey.

The duo of Sharna and Zak continued making music together in London with Zak on guitar and Liguz on vocals under the name Sshh. They were asked to do a SiriusXM series discussing their musical influences. Instead of simply discussing individual songs, the duo decided to take a different approach to the series by inviting original members of the rhythm sections of the influential bands to play with them and record. The effort resulted in Issues, the duo’s debut album of cover songs which benefits the Teen Cancer Program.

The duo have not set a release date for the album, but have released the track list with the names of collaborating artists:

“Problems” with Paul Cook and Glen Matlock of Sex Pistols
