I would say it is much more artistic, and difficult, to play what jumps into your head at that precise moment in time, and risk something new, than simply play what you have practiced 1000 times before, and will play exactly the same the following night. I know I don't have the nerve to do it. Rock is supposed to be about excitement.

You could say, in that respect, that he was an artist, and the other drummers were simply painting by numbers.
I love that you and I agree on something .

It's a Christmas miracle :)

Be well my friend
