Dana Strum (born Dana Strumwasser on December 13, 1958 in Washington, DC) is the bassist of heavy metal band Slaughter.[1] Before that, he was in Vinnie Vincent Invasion together with future Slaughter bandmate, Mark Slaughter.[2] He was raised in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and began his performing career in the band Badaxe, playing regularly at the infamous Starwood along with Quiet Riot, Mötley Crüe, and others.

Prior to achieving mainstream success with Slaughter, Strum served as a talent scout of sorts for the Los Angeles metal scene. A longtime friend of Black Sabbath vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, he introduced Osbourne to guitarist Randy Rhoads and was later credited with placing Jake E. Lee in Osbourne's band.[2] He is also recognized as having placed both Vinnie Vincent (prior to performing with the guitarist in Vinnie Vincent's Invasion) and Mark St. John in Kiss.[2] Dana Strum produced Kik Tracee's 1991 'No Rules' under BMG Music. Dana Strum has lately been playing with Vince Neil and has recorded a new studio album with him.[3]
