It's crazy to watch him play because he's so HUGE that it looks like he's playing a tiny drumset with itty-bitty sticks, plus he plays open and so loose

not to mention the fact that he looks like he could be reading the morning paper while utterly laying waste to his drumkit.

I would speak with Ray Luzier again, very cool chill guy, but most likely I would ask him or any other drummer what are you thinking about when you are playing?

I wouldn't mind asking Chris Adler why he still uses a Paiste Flanger Bell instead of the Soundcaster Distortion Splash that was made for him..
Hmmmm, going to see LOG in Glasgow over the Valentine's Weekend so I will see if I can catch him and the guys round the back smoking

i am of the opinion that elvin jones and tony williams are the 2 greatest to ever play, and they also happened to play with 2 of the most influential jazz ensembles of all time. i would ask them about that.

I met him too way back in 97 when SYL opened for Testament. The guy is incredibly nice. He went out of his way to talk to me, sign stuff, etc.

I'd apologize to Portnoy for stealing so many of his licks. :D
