Wow. Just checked out some of the vids. Never heard of this guy, but it's pretty amazing that he's got millions of views on his channel. Just goes to show how far savvy promotion and stick flips will get you.
Now, HERE'S how to do a cover, IMO. Troy Wright is one of my favorite "youtube drummers", mainly because you know for a fact that this guy can cut it on pretty much any stage once you hear him play. Absolutely killer .
Just my $.02!
