Anways, I won't be treated to that MD issue over here for a couple of months at least, so i wait in great anticipation.

And there is a difference between a great drummer and a great teacher. Some drummers are both and, sadly, some of the greatest drummers, because of their lack of ability to communicate, will take everything to the grave with them.
