Agreed, his guitar playing is more interesting to me.

On a side note, anyone ever see, "It Might Get Loud"? A documentary about Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White, it's pretty good. Apparently White played drums before he played guitar. He used to have two kits setup in his room and would sleep on a roll out mat to make space for all of his music equipment.

Although when you watch the film (are they still called films) you really get to see his point of view regarding the music he makes. Honestly, I don't think there's any amount of money you could pay him to try to become a (insert your favorite drummer).
