The gravity blast is where you use the method of pushing and pulling the stick on and off the rim in an up and down motion using the rim as the folcrum. It's also called the One Handed Roll.

It's a nice thing to know how to do, just to have it in your bag of tricks. It's really only musically applicable in about .00001% of your playing. So learn it if you will, but don't learn it over other things that will help you be a better player, this won't.

if by insane you mean really fast, really sloppy, goes over the bar line in his solos and isnt able to come back properly, and puts rediculous speed fills into slow 4/4 beats that dont even come close to fitting.
then yeah, hes insane

I have his DVD too and I feel that he shouldn't be doing gravity blasts in his solos until it becomes second nature, like how Marco has made it. It does make him go slightly off. He looks really uncomfortable when doing it too.
