Re: James Kottak
I saw James with the Scorps a couple of years ago, I hadn't heard of him before the show. I knew by the first sight of his kit before he ever came onstage that he was going to be a real showman, two huge kicks, one tom in the center, floor toms off to the side with all his cymbals out to the sides, not exactly in easy reach, all signs of a kit geared to a very animated, showy type drummer & he indeed did not disappoint. Very solid, powerful drummer with all the right flash & tricks that unlike some, do not hinder or detract from his ability to drum very well.
