I should add he's also a lovely guy. I met him at a Zildjian event once & got talking - he ended up inviting me down to the soundcheck on the next tour ("This Strange Engine") to show me some cymbal tricks! Incredible. A true gent.
I'm a fan since misplaced childhood. He's also one of my biggest influences. I'd love to some vids on drummerworld.com. But besides I love his work not only within the Marillion-Surrounding but also on Steve Hackets Highly Strung (incredible fills!) and he also drummed on Sally Oldfield Records. Anyway, a cool drummer!
