Alex Elena, who played drums on Bruce Dickinson's 'Alive In Studio A' and 'Skunkworks' albums is to release a photographic album of a recent visit to Panama appropriately entitled 'Mission To Panama' by Alex Elena.
Alex has had a very varied career as a drummer, producer and now photographer. He joined Bruce Dickinson's band while still in his teens, moving from his native Rome to London. After four years in London he moved to New York to continue his work as a drummer, playing sessions for artists such as Avril Lavigne, Belinda Carlisle and Miles Davis.

During this time he was immersed in studio work and gained the neccesary experience to turn to production and open his own studio in Los Angeles. He has since produced songs for Lily Allen, Imani Coppola and the Grammy nominated 'Dreams' for Alice Smith.
His career as a photographer is relatively new-found and has seen him travel to Africa and Central America in search of unique images.
