Bachman is not stiff I can tell you that. The number one thing he teaches is having loose hands.
The reason it looks stiff I think is because of two things. He uses more wrist then fingers when playing slower which means the butt of the stick is closer to his palm but it never ever touches the palm except for when playing downstrokes.
The second reason it looks stiff is because of the strict stick heights on accents, downstrokes and taps.
