Ian is a really nice guy and one of the greats for sure!
He was nice enough to talk about his foot technique on that old Mule solo where it goes from slow singles to real fast too.
His feel on the kit is real smooth and a lot lighter than he looks like he's playing (and what it sounds like).
To me, he's like the Joe Morello of rock.
He used one pair of sticks for the whole show, which say's something about having good technique.
His speed and power are still there that's for sure.
I have the "Not for the Pro's" DVD and I really like it.
I'd recommend it to any Ian fan, it's worth the money.
The DVD's of Ian with Chad Smith are cool too.
Here are a few pics I took last summer.
