Musical style

McLennan drums for The Predators only during live performances, as all recorded drumming is performed by Steven Bishop, who is also the group's singer. McLennan's style is influenced mainly by alternative and classical rock drummers, such as Dave Grohl, John Bonham, Charlie Watts, and Ringo Starr. The Predators' debut EP, Pick Up the Pace, has also drawn comparisons to the likes of David Bowie, especially when performed at live concerts such as Splendour in the Grass.
