So it might be they sound a lot like him now.\
nope....they sounded like that when he got here fresh outta Berklee sounding like a fusion bomb exploded
I have nothing against Jim
he is a nice guy and a good player .....I dig his playing very much ....he does a lot of really nice sounding unique things and always makes the music sound and feel great
I'm just never a fan of down talking your peers.... especially those who play in the same circles as you
I would be able to pick Aris playing out before Jims every time
and if he did not play those cymbals that sound like garbage can lids I may never be able to pick him out
I love the sound of those cymbals by the way .....but it is the only thing that makes me wonder if it is him when I hear it.....not his playing
but hey any press is good press as they say
I don't care what they say about me just spell my name right........right?
