Re: Vinnie Colauita
Lead Drumming and Rhythm Drumming.....I love it. I'm gonna use it.
For me, I've always been a rock steady rhythm drummer with a few Lead tricks (but not enough to constantly solo all night).
My ONLY complaint about Vinnie is that I've never been a big fan of his extremely difficult polyrhythms for difficulty sake. Seems like sometimes, he's just playing math games with the music (that song Tweaked and his commentary on it on a MD Festival DVD says it all).
The drumming for Megadeath was kinda boring, for metal drumming, but I agree about the Kick the Chair riff...cool.
I saw him on TV with Faith Hill. Perfect Rhythm drumming ;-)
