Re: Documentary for new Dream Theater drummer and their choice of Mike Mangini....

aha, yes, Mozart and Tchaikovsky were VERY poorly chosen examples to compare, but were just what came out in my attempt to describe what I meant.

Re: Documentary for new Dream Theater drummer and their choice of Mike Mangini....

It really is subjective though.

Re: Documentary for new Dream Theater drummer and their choice of Mike Mangini....

I could not agree with you more in regards to offering more with a live performance and expression than what is strictly just one the record.

Re: Documentary for new Dream Theater drummer and their choice of Mike Mangini....

No at all 'fanboy'. I have very strong opinions on such matters and I am certainly not one of them.

Perhaps I asserted a very subjective view a little too overstated - made an opinion sound like...

Re: Drumming expression

ANYTHING!!

Your instrument, no matter what it be, is your artistic tool to express and communicate whatever you want.

To say and express what only art can.

Re: Documentary for new Dream Theater drummer and their choice of Mike Mangini....

Thank you. The Weckl video however is extremely old and not happy at all with my performance on it. Very sloppy and lacks any real 'feel'.
