Default Re: Scott Rockenfield

Whoa! very interesting - thanks - for being open and to share your life experience. Did you achieve that goal?

The Warning, Operation Mindcrime, Empire are amazing albums.

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.
The back of beyond ...
