Virgil grew up with a bunch of heroes playing trad. grip. Gadd, Buddy, Elvin Jones, to name a few. He chose to stick with that, even through hard rock.

Today he states (ands has done so several times) that objectively speaking, matched grip is
easier maintained, and recommendable in any way. He just sticks to trad. because that's the way he grew up playing, and he still likes it.
