Re: Steve Smith
Kinda sad about the comments I'm reading about the guy's arrogance and ungracious attitude for his fans. I mean, imagine if the dude never got the Journey gig. He's just be another drummer, even if he was every ounce as good but he'd REALLY have no right to be so arrogant. At the end of the day, who pays his bills? His fans. Royalties from Journey records, clinic money and touring with this jazz group.... who fits the bill? Fans.
I really admire the guy's ability and dedication to improving constantly. Truly I have to say, he's become one of the greatest alive and possibly of all time, from the perspective of versatility and chops. This still doesn't afford you the right to be a jerk.
