Matt Starr is a drummer, speaker and career coach who has recorded and toured with members of KISS, Guns n Roses, Mr Big, Bon Jovi and others. However, Matt’s success did not come until later in life. Approaching 40, Matt realized that although he was playing music, he was not living his dreams, “It was then that I discovered the meaning of the word humility”, admits Matt. “I had to ask myself, ‘why are these people successful and why am I not?’” In a few short years Matt Starr went from being an unknown to recording and touring the world with artists he grew up listening to.

Being a Rock Star is not about being famous, it’s about Exceptionalism. “Everyday I live my own words.”, says Matt. “If this approach to life didn’t work, you would have never heard of me, because I’d be stuck where I was.”

Matt has spent the past several years sharing his story and Rock Star Code around the world through keynote addresses, group workshops and one-on-one coaching.
