Wow, great interview. He pulls no punches though not unfairly, and is chock full of excellent advice!

The last thing a drummer gains is confidence. I need to remember that.

Sorry to hear of his passing.

Sad news. I read that MD interview back when it came out. That magazine introduced me to so many drummers I never would have heard of otherwise. He was a fantastic player.

He was my biggest drum hero. I feel lucky and thankful to have seen him and learned from him. May he Rest In Peace.
