I love it when someone asks who my favorite drummer is. I always tell my students if you limit yourself to one player, or even a few drummers to dig it's a great disservice to your ability to learn from all the great players we have in this era. Ahhh, the magic of youtube etc. I only wish I would have had these wonderful tools when I was a young guy in the 60's! What a magnificent time we live in for learning, listening, and developing our skills as drummers/percussionists!
