Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing
You are absolutely an inspiration for me to play; it honestly wasn't meant as flattery, but it's a sincere thought. I'm super jealous of your students, simply because I've learned a ton from your head, and I don't even get to take lessons.
If I could inspire others to play down the road as you've done to me, I'd feel accomplished. Inspiring others is something to take pride in.
