Re: Vinnie Colaiuta
I believe the Sting 40th birthday concert was originally available only on Laserdisc in Japan. I got (and still have) a very high quality audio CD from the radio broadcast of the gig. It has an amazing energy, due in no small part to Vinnie's playing. He really was very energetic in the early time with Sting ("Soul Cages" tour) and I loved the sound of his Yamaha Maple Custom set.
His snare sound on this tour was awesome too & I think the cymbals included Platinum Ping Ride / Platinum Quick Beats.
