Re: Vinnie Colauita
i'd hate to ever say what drummer is" THE BEST", 'cause i think the older you get,you realize there really is no such thing. i'm sure some drummers can play one certain style better than vinnie,for instance maybe great brazilian born drummers growing up around sambas,mambos and such may play that style better,but all-around, but from interviews i've read even the great drummers pretty much say vinnie's the man right now. but i'm sure if we approached most of our drum heroes, and "said mr.----(fill in the blank) you're the best drummer in the world",most(if not all) would probably be embarrassed or just say thanks, because at their level it's probably whose style and feel you like(as well as the tunes they played on.)and everyone learns from everyone,right?
