Default Re: Vinnie Colauita

I just listened to The System has Failed by Megadeth, on which Vinnie performed. He is like a chameleon; he can perform in so many different styles and genres. The drum work is not very technically demanding, but Vinnie did an excellent job. Also, his work with Frank Zappa is simply astounding. His name is in a song by Zappa called "Catholic Girls". The lines read:

"They're learning to blow
All the Catholic Boys
Warren Cuccurullo
Catholic Boys
Vinnie Colaiuta"
(pronounced Coh lee UT uh)
- Marc
