Re: Greg Saunier
Out of all the drummers I enjoy, Greg is definitely on the top of the list of drummers I'm influenced by. He's inspired me to scale down my drumkit and be more creative and experimental with my music. Throw the rulebook out the window and play what's deep inside.
Not to mention his extreme use of dynamics, subtlety, phrasing, and ways of creating tension-and-release in Deerhoof's music just completely floors me, especially live.
