He inspired me to have my cymbals hang from above because I like to get 100% outta them. But ofcourse, I didn't do that until I saw someone of the guys admired did that :D
And the rack system he used, the Greg Voelker system, geeez I want that.
What do you think of him? He certainly is an inspiration to me.
Nick is a great drummer no doubt, But I have to give kudos to Tommy Aldridge he was the first drummer I seen hang cymbals back in the 80's with Whitesnake. I seen Megadeth 3 times all with Nick behind the kit and he was as Great live as well as in the studio.
