Different strokes for different folks I guess. I thought Gadd blew the other two out of the water. Vinnie seemed to just play single stoke rolls for most of the solo and that got really old for me. Weckl lacks soul and seems too mechanical.
Gadd played in the pocket and whenever I hear that drum battle I can't sit still when Gadds playing. Vinnies never done much for me.
That said the much talked about 50 ways geoove left me shaking my head when I first heard it. I thought it was kinda silly.
