Yeah, sure. For all the "Pros are always nice to each other!" stuff that goes on around here that's not been my experience. Pros tend to CARE about drumming. That means that their positive feelings on music are very strong, and likewise if they don't like it then they tend to be happy to say so and argue their points politely.

I can't think of a single one of my teachers at Drumtech who didn't say something implying a dislike of one drummer or another during my time there. That's not to say it's a hotbed of negativity, just that not every drummer loves every other drummer's approach to playing. I don't see why people should be forced to pretend they do when they clearly don't.
