Hoping Carl is better soon.

Great, great drummer - perfect for ELP. I was crazy about him in my youth. His playing on Toccata, The Barbarian, Take a Pebble, KE9, Eruption and Bitches Crystal was incredible.

Couldn't care less about any timing issues or overplaying - the latter being pretty well a trademark for the band, anyway. If the other players don't mind, then it's not my problem. Sometimes timing variations and taste shortfalls are part of a track's charm and it's not quite the same when they're played "correctly". He always plays with great passion and conviction.
