Re: Dave Weckl
I'm glad it seems that most people in this thread enjoy and appreciate Dave, and I can't blame those who say Dave's not their cup of tea....
but it blows my mind when people say he's unoriginal or boring!!!
He's the extreme opposite fo me
But what I like most about Dave, as well as some of my other favs, is that he makes the drums a LEAD instrument, while also playing the drummer's role by holding down a groove a keeping time. His amazing chops just don't get in the way of his primary responsibilities
Busy, highly technical playing may not be your favorite but u cannot deny his creativity, phrasing, and execution.
