Re: So, what is it with Steve Gadd
Just goes to show that groove and feel are more important than chops MWUHAHAHAHA
Who can forget the joy those little "debates" (aka firestorms) brought us? Those threads were like a microcosm of public discourse today, where hardly anyone lands their point right in the sane middle ground - right in the pocket. Instead, debates are almost always full of people whose stance is basically "this is My Side and those on the Other Side are of bad intent".
Make no mistake, Steve has absolutely brilliant chops and without those tools he wouldn't be able to do all those marvellous things he does with groove, feel, and interpretation. But his chops aren't mind-blowing like those of Vinnie and Dave - they're "merely" brilliant. Poor old Steve :)
