Superb playing from Keith as usual, although the sound on that clip is not very good, I love the way he play these very intense grooves, and I like the open bass drum sound, it's more difficult to achieve the sound you want, but I prefer an open sound than a dry thud anytime.

Keith's kick patterns are very busy, playing around with lots of 16th notes, and sometimes it's overplayed, for sure, but it does sound good an complement his sound/style, the typical low end thud would not have the same effect.
Keep On Drumming
