Awesome clips.

(and why I chuckle when some one tries to say serious drummers don't twirl or flip their sticks).

I was fortunate to have seen him play when I was a kid. Don't even really remember it to be honest. He was doing an intimate seminar at a small music shop where I took a few lessons when I was about 8-9yrs (teacher was Mickey Hart of Grateful Dead fame before he was added).......

the OP's post kinda helped bring the memory back....thanks!
