Default Re: Jean-Paul Gaster

My first experience with Clutch came with the Pure Rock Fury album and I fell in love with this band. The band seems to bridge a gap between retro/classic rock and new rock. I find this band to have a few similarities to tool (one of my favorites and yours). Very provocative lyrics, powerful and infectious grooves, cult following (despite rather low profile) oh and witchdoctors behind the drums. I find the parallels remarkable considering how different their music is.

Jean-Paul is a murderer on those drums. I love the minimalist approach to a maximized sound. I find his tempo and chops are more impressive now that I've determined his hands are made of "led."

Press here for my drums
