Hi Matt,

I ever so briefly met you at PIT. I think you had been out on tour the entire year, and you just came back days before my graduation (1992). A lot of the other teachers spoke highly of you.

So when I saw your name on the Alanis CD, I thought oh, wow, cool, I know this guy is!

A few years back, you were the answer to a trivia question on this very board that allowed me to win a CD! lol.

I hope you have a chance to participate in the community here at drummerworld. It would be great to get your insight on some of the various topics that come up.

Matt, I had a disagreement with my bass player about the Alanis Morriset tune. I said I thought you used brushes for that tune. am I wrong?

He also told me it was Taylor Hawkins playing.
