Awesome double bass work and fills.

Another nice groove is on "Big Trouble" Simple to play, but it is a great groove.
I have spoken with people who have met him and concur that he is absolutely humble and nice.
Big trouble is a cool song. Gregg actually showed me how to play the drums for the little drum break he did in the song.
I just picked up a cd called "In the eye of time" By Vox Tempus. Gregg played on the cd. Its very Dream Theateresque. It has some very good songs. Crazy time changes and grooves. I am very familiar w/Greggs work and I have to say this has to be w/out a doubt some of his best work. Specialy that he was a guest drummer and not a band member. Some songs are 7-8 minutes long. He definatly gives Portnoy a run for his money in the Prog Rock catagory.
