Re: Scott Rockenfield
When I was 20, my goal in life was to BE Scott Rockenfield.
I've always loved the way he found the exact 1/2 way point between over the top Neil Peart and pounding AC/DC style.
He always seemed to know when to throw in the chops, and when to simplify and just drive the band with 2 & 4.
Although on the last few albums, he's gotten away from trying to come up interesting parts.
A few years ago, I went to an autograph signing, and brought a poster of him with the huge Tama kit (from the Empire era), and he said he didn't even have a copy of that poster! He was impressed I not only had one, but had kept it all these years.
