Powered by Audioscrobbler™Gary Young (born May 3, 1953 in Mamaroneck, New York) is an alternative rock musician who garnered a degree of notoriety as the original drummer for the band Pavement.

During the band's initial period in 1989, Young, then in his mid thirties, had singer-guitarists Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg record at his in-home Stockton, California studio, "Louder Than You Think". A multi-instrumentalist, Young sat in as their drummer. Within the span of three years, the band released three EPs and an LP; "Slay Tracks (1933-1969)", "Demolition Plot J-7", "Perfect Sound Forever", and their debut album, "Slanted and Enchanted". By 1992, other members were brought in to make Pavement a full-fledged band.

The next year, it was clear that Young's stage persona, which included doing handstands, drunkenly falling off his drum stool, and running around the venue during performances, was taking a toll on the band. Young was politely asked if he'd step down.

In 1994, Young released his debut solo album, "Hospital", featuring the fan-favorite initial single, "Plantman". Two more albums followed until 1999. As of late, Young makes a living marketing recording studio products.
