Steve Gadd has all the chops & all the groove he needs. He has played on more albums than Vinnie & Dave put together, ( please feel free to add a few more names of world class drummers here, and he'd still be more.. ), and thats the proof of the pudding, period. In eating it.

Playing music has never been a comparative analysis of certain body parts, its about how effectively they are used. If that were true, the entire world would collectively bow to Thomas Lang and not to Ringo Starr.

No no no no no i didn't mean to do anything of the sort that was not my intention at all. I was merely stating that i connected with the groove that Gadd played more than anything else in that video, it is my favourite part. I love Vinnie and Weckl and they get the same respect and admiratrion from me that Gadd does as i know they all have the groove and chops necessary to express themselves fully. There i hope that clears things up.
