Russell Hopkinson is the drummer for Australian rock act [a=You Am I]. Drummer for Perth band, [a=Cremator (2)]. Allegedly, Rusty was an occasional drinking buddy of You Am I while with his then band, indie act Nursery Crimes, around the turn of the 1990s. Shortly after the recording of You Am I's first album, Sound As Ever (1993), the relationship with drummer Mark Tunaley soured and Rusty was seen as an ideal replacement. Ever since, Hopkinson has been a core member of the band.
