We must have different definitions of the word "big".
Has he played on any recordings that have sold? No.
Has he played on any tier-one tours? No.
Here are some people that have made it big: Danny Carey, Neil Peart, Chad Smith, Simon Phillips, Dave Weckl, Vinne Colaiuta, Carter Beauford ...
See the difference?
As far as jealousy, give me a break. If I wanted some "mediocre musician" kid to be jealous of it would be Justin Bieber. At least he has a fat bank account.
