Re: Chris "Daddy" Dave
I was lucky enough to go to school with Chris & met him in the Summer Jazz Workshop in Houston when we were just kids. He was a monster then. I was completely jealous of him of course (fellow drummer here). But if he was playing I damn sure stopped what I was doing and listened. He was never afraid of trying ANYTHING on the drums. I don't think I've heard him play the same lick twice... As far as his quickness that someone posted about earlier - he's just damn quick. That's all. I'm sure he has techniques for *really* fast one handed playing, but mostly he just muscles it through. One of the most dynamic drummers ever...
