Oops, just found this. No, I don't think Weckl had more chops on display than Vinnie. I just don't think he had as much fire - The thing that is most notable about Weckl on that video is his chops, while Vinnie has energy coming out of his ears which kind of distracts you from the fact that he's also playing some the trickiest stuff on the planet. Gadd has groove a mile deep, which I must admit I do slightly prefer to either of the other approaches - I like Vinnie better when he's a bit more groove-heavy rather than the constant explosive approach seen on that 3-way battle thing.
