Default Re: So, what is it with Steve Gadd

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.
I saw that video. I don't know how you could think he wasn't as good. When he played his solos actually sounded good. They were easy to listen to compared to Vinnie and Dave Weckl's solos.
