For example, I saw a performance of Vinnie, Dave Weckl, and Steve Gadd playing together, and he seemed to be totally outclassed by the others.
Is there something i'm missing? Or maybe I am unable to appreciate his drumming.
Vinnie is a king of chops and speed but man Gadd has the groove in that video. My favourite part is and always will be where Gadd brings the groove in i feel it so much. Not really a listener of his playing but i appreciate it most definately.
