Dont get me wrong - Jason is doing some great things for the metal drumming community, and when people get excited by his playing and study his every move its only ever a good thing for drumming. Im simply saying that I didnt see anything in the MD DVD or hear anything on his albums that really moved me.
To each his own.
Again and again: sorry Damo - you really don't get it!! he was voted the No. 1 drummer with good reason.
I stood behind him at Pasic (and behind all other drummers too). But Jason had by far the most professional punch of all - heavyweight champion. Perhaps doesn't work out well on DVD's - but be sure: Washed with all waters and a true master.
He's also a really good professional teacher with the most solid technical background inklusive fine brushwork and jazz.
Speed???? What is this??? Be sure, there is enough speed around!!!
