music of my life
I've met him twice. First, he gave a drum clinic at the school, at the unforgetable P100 room. He talks so many amazing drum story and he plays stunning technique. What really kickin' my ass was his very fast left hand, when he did three stroke, just flew between toms and floor tom in a very fast one movement, end it with the kick drum, while the right hand still keeping the swing. Man!....you'll never believe this. Then we've met once again at the NAMM show, 1995, at Anaheim, Los Angeles, presenting The Real Feel practice pad and selling his new CD (got one!!)
clinic twice and 1 masterclass at school. First time I knew him was
from his work with Stevie Vai, on "SEX AND RELIGION" album.
The drum sound were earthy and I just love his china cymbal splash here
and there. He talked about melodic concept on drumset. Then I start
to collect some of his work : polytown, Lonely bear, missing person,
and off course his solo and ostinato's CD.
