    wow there's no weckl thread in here?

    NONE...just the one with the weckl/gadd/colaiuta vid. anyway, apparently, even though I thought he was a monster when I saw him years ago, he's gotten even more ridiculously good. This is some ridiculous stuff, played with AWESOME feel.

    matt cameron

    this guy's playing with soundgarden was nothing short of some of the best heavy rock drumming ever. sublime, inventive, and that elusive ability to make something complex groove so hard you don't notice the technique involved. I LOVE the groove to Jesus Christ Pose...
