I've seen DC with John Scofield, CAB and with Niacin 4 or 5 times and he is an absolute monster. He can be superbly explosive or just work the pocket like nobody's business. Tremendous limb independence. Great technical chops and his rhythms are always killer. I just saw Billy Cobham and as much as I love Billy even he wasn't as explosive as DC. DC seems to have picked up where Billy left off and ran with it. Let's face it, just about anyone can be taught to play drums, but to get to DC's level is something a lot of drummers will never achieve. I've heard DC on many different sessions and he never fails to impress. The man is just out of this world, period!
