check this video out



as much respect as i have for this guy as a metal drummer, i have to disagree. i saw him on video playing in a blues/jazz band and to say the least he did not swing. he may have been schooled enough to be playing a swing pattern, but the feel was just way too straight. this happens though with a lot of technically proficient players. see neil peart on the Burning for Buddy cd.
In your OPINION...of course!!

...Play On! ;-)
