Re: Pete Erskine
Oh don't get me wrong, I think he's a fantastic drummer - great sound and tone, with a ridiculous amount of fludity around the kit.
I just think he's a bit too much of a safe player - I don't really feel that element of risk and sudden release of tension when listening to him. I dunno how to describe it, but I know what Erik means about that 'professional' way of playing.
I guess it's just personal taste in the end, but his style of playing doesn't excite me that much compared with other drummers.
