But the second look just blew me. Just so much musical taste and such a deep Groove - when I listen to him I always think: "F*** all that technichal stuff that people like Lang or Minnemann do - Manu plays the way it is ment to be!" He truly got me away from the flashy superdrummers that have great technique but nothing to say musically.
Amen to that! I just bought "Secret World Live" on DVD. Thrilling, inspiring drumming - the intuitiveness
of it is what I like the most. I've wanted to emulate that intuitiveness that I see in his playing, in Bill Bruford's and Joey Baron's playing, ever since I realized I would never be able to be a serious competitor in the technique department.
