From a MD interview (http://www.moderndrummer.com/site/20....UDvJlqDWDAk):
MD: What’s with the super-high crash?
John: I didn’t want any cymbals but the hi-hats at first. Then I was like, “Okay, I’ll use one,” but I didn’t want it near me because I’d use it too much. So I set it high so I’d have to work to get to it. I wanted it to be significant; I use it as a marker. It’s like a master reset button when I go to the cymbal. Plus, it looks cool.
He reminds me of Shooter McGavin.
