Re: The Truth about Art Verdi
No argument from me. I've never seen him play beyond stuff that was clearly speed or WFD oriented, but everything I hear about his playing from people who've seen it is very positive.
I'm sure Art is one of the many, many absolutely amazing drummers out there of whom we never hear anything. I've met plenty in my time, and there are some astounding people out there.
But I don't think that validates his arguments in favour of the WFD any more than Purdie's glowing discography validates his dodgy Beatles claims. But that's for another thread.
