Matt Walker
St. Louis Blues Matt Walker (R) and Phoenix Coyotes Tyson Nash collide with each other in the second period at the Savvis Center in St. Louis on February 16, 2004.

Matt Walker is a musician and former drummer for Filter and The Smashing Pumpkins.

Matt Walker began his career in Chicago in the mid 80s, when Matt began playing drums for the already well known Scott Bennett of Scott Bennett & The Obvious. At this time Matt formed his own band with bassist from Scott Bennett and The Obvious, Mick Vaughn, and good friend Marshall Dawson to form his pet project Moron Tasty. He then played with Peat Moss until landing the gig with Filter.

Walker filled in as touring drummer for The Smashing Pumpkins when drummer Jimmy Chamberlin was fired after a heroin overdose. He finished the Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness tour with the band (1996 - 1997) and all of their dates up until the beginning of the Adore tour; this includes their television appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien where they played the song "Muzzle". Walker also recorded the song "The End Is the Beginning Is the End" with the band on the official Batman & Robin movie soundtrack, as well as the demos and early recordings of Adore. He also worked with Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan on the soundtrack for the movie Ransom and with Pumpkins guitarist James Iha on Iha's solo album Let It Come Down. In 1998, Walker was asked to tour with the Pumpkins throughout the band's Adore world tour, but he declined. Matt was replaced by John Mellencamp's drummer, Kenny Aronoff, for the following tour. Walker did, however, play with the Pumpkins again at their final show on 2 December 2000 when he played percussion on an alternate version of the song "Muzzle" and drums on "1979", while the original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin played acoustic guitar. He once again rejoined the Pumpkins on percussion during the Chicago dates of their 20th anniversary tour in November and December 2008.
