Re: Virgil Donati
I just wanted to pop in and state that I'm a big big fan of Virgil and his playing. I believe I know most of his stuff, and I think his playing - (concerning technique and "his language") is just a whole world in itself.
I perfectly understand that there are people who just don't like his playing. But some of the stuff said about him or his playing makes me quite sad. I think you MAY somewhat bash a drummer who claims to be the best, or at least thinks of himself as a great great drummer, especially if he isn't:D. But never does Virgil say anything just near that - on the contrary, "After all those years I feel I've just scratched the surface" is my favourite quotes of his.
