Sounded superb to my ears - cool ideas, great sounds. And great musicians (the bassist is from Symphony X - a band I adore).
What a great thought that is. That's what inspiration is all about.Sounds cool!
I saw Virgil twice last week with OTV and my inspiration to play has returned to fully erect. I was getting a bit stale lately and seeing how hard Virgil works really put me in my place, I'm too lazy for the sake of comfort and efficiency. I want to learn to play a bit harder comfortably, put more effort into moving around the kit and just take more risks in general.
There are some clips on YouTube btw, check it out.
I'm a Virgil fan and I know he can play it straight, but for some reason, this just doesn't do it for me. I feel like he's kind of bored, not really laying into it with the conviction he usually shows. Maybe because it's a rehearsal, or maybe the problem is me, but it doesn't knock me out like he usually does.Found a video with Virgil rehearsing for the Bonzo Bash 2012 (I guess?).
Awesome stuff - Virgil in an unusual setting musically and instrument-wise, and he
rocks it amazingly!! Very tasty stuff to me, played astonishingly as usual.
Of course he doesn't sound like Bonzo, but a) who does, and b) he doesn't have to .
