Longineu Warren "LP" Parsons III (born February 16, 1980) is a French-born American rock musician. He is best known for being the former drummer for the American pop punk band Yellowcard.

Early life

Parsons has been playing the drums since he was five; he played with his father, Longineu W. Parsons II in his band The Longineu Parsons Ensemble.

Music career

Yellowcard (1997-2014)

Parsons joined Yellowcard in 1997 along with Ben Dobson, Todd Clary, Warren Cooke and Ben Harper after meeting at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts. He has been with the band ever since 1997's Midget Tossing until 2013's Ocean Avenue Acoustic.

On March 13, 2014, Parsons left Yellowcard. By this point, Parsons had been the only remaining member of the original lineup. According to their Facebook page, the band said in a joint statement, "Longineu has decided to pursue other musical interests. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."

Other work: 2008-present

During the Yellowcard hiatus, Parsons played drums for Adam Lambert from October 2009 through September 2010. Parsons founded rap-rock group, LPMD with producer, Miles M. Davis. Their debut album, "Off The Record," released September 27, 2011. Parsons formed a new band, This Legend, in early 2014. Ben Harper, another former Yellowcard member, also is a member of the band.

This Legend: 2014-present

In June 2014, Parsons and former bandmate Ben Harper (Yellowcard) formed a new band with Chris Castillo (lead vocals and rhythm guitar) and Steven Neufeld (bass guitar) called This Legend. They released their first album "It's In The Streets" on Nov. 11, 2014. The band played several shows across the U.S. to promote the album.

As of 2017, the band is on hiatus due to band members' other interests. Parsons began playing drums with Ten Foot Pole and Stages and Stereos.

As of 2019 Parsons became the drummer for New Years Day and played in the bands first headlining tour.
