Default Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

I've got a question re: Vinnie and his standing as far as past MD awards.

Wikipedia's page on Vinnie cites....

Colaiuta has won a total of 18 Drummer of the Year awards from Modern Drummer Magazine's annual reader polls. These include 10 awards in the "Best Overall" category.
While wiki content doesn't necessarily have to be true, it seems a bunch of other internet sites reference wiki's above stat, while I can't find anywhere on the MD site whether this is actually true.

For the record, I happen to be a big Vinnie fan, and was just curious how he's done in these polls over the past decades compared to his contemporaries -- has he won more MD readers poll awards than anyone else?

Is there a MD or alternate legit site (not wiki) that lists this information?
