So by todays standards, as great as Tommy is he could get looked at as average along w/ Alex Van Halen, Deen Castronova, Gregg Bissonette and others that have used it well but not gone to the extremes.
Still, Tommy is a big influence to many, many drummers. Myself included.
Ummm, Speed isn't everything. Where he places patterens and how he places them are awesome! It's his feel I guess.
I play Gretsch Drums, Remo Heads, Sabian Cymbals and Vic Firth AC 2b's wood tip
