Re: Billy Ward here!
I've been watching the MD Festival 2000 DVD a lot lately and have found myself repeating your chapter again and again ... I must say I liked your approach both to the talk and to playing... It is all too easy as "drumming technicians" to forget what purpose technique serves and, in pursuit of more/better chops (or by over-emulating our drum heroes), lose sight of the identity *we* should be bringing to the music... Thanks for the reminder! :-)
I just ordered your new CD, BTW ... really looking forward to it!
