Re: Thought Travis was gonna break the record
I think that the top WFD guys are genetic freaks. They may have more white fibers than the rest of us or something. Yes, technique will take you anywhere you want to go but technique COMBINED with superior genetics will take you farther.
To make a simple analogy: Anyone can improve their physical condition thru diet/exercise but that doesn't mean that anyone could be the next Schwarzenegger (or the next Mike Mangini)
As far as Travis goes. He's a very good drummer in a genre full of second-rate drummers so all of the little fans he has think he's amazing. He wouldn't dare tarnish that rep by trying to break 1,000.
Either you have a purpose behind your expression... or you don't.
