I am going to have to disagree with most of you and say that Steven was never an "awesome" drummer, and he is far below average as far as pro's go.... and this was back when he was 100%. I have seen him play many times over the years. When Guns 'N' Roses replaced him with Matt Sorum there was a huge
improvement in all of the songs. Sorum is 10x better than Steven ever was and there is no way Steven could have pulled off the drum tracks on the Use Your Illusion double cd. Matt nailed those songs and brought them to life.
