I think that's true - and Holdsworth likes drummers that don't simply play repeating patterns, so Virgil is a natural.

What is interesting to me however is the fact that Virgil still has a broadly rock sound, as opposed to a jazz/fusion sound. It takes some getting used to with what is fusion music, after all. Did anyone else think the drum kit sounded a bit flat on that last video? Not so much tone.... and it's a Pearl Reference I'm sure.
