Other drummers influence my playing style a lot. When I was really into Dave Weckl, I played a lot of jazz. When I was into Virgil Donati, I played a lot of technical stuff.

i think it definitely can because your area to a certain extent can influence your musical selection. for example, metal is big in florida. jazz is big in chicago and what used to be new orleans. im not saying that people definitly listen to what's big in their area, but it definitely can influence it. and the music you listen to directly influences how you play
