Of course, if I'm shown something which just proves what I've said completely wrong - then I'll happily retract the statement.
But in the meantime give me some Elvin over Erskine anyday.
Elvin is his most favourite drummer...his hero i guess. I've got one if his dvd/book packs (the erskine method), and he has some really tasty playing on there.
