Re: Virgil Donati
My two favourite drummers are...
One for unbelievable "chops" and sheer technical ability and the other for aggressive and memorable, yet relatively simple, drum tracks.
Different strokes for different folks, and all that.
For old time's sake I popped on Planet X - Moonbabies and although the music itself is horrid IMO, the drumming is sensational, and that is the reason I bought it, it gave me alot of inspiration which coupled with the inspiration from other drummers, coming from a different place is no bad thing!
Who says Virgil can't groove? He most certainly can, just check out track 9's intro (Midnight Bell) on this album, he just prefers to blow your mind!
