I might turn that around on you and say itís a slap in the face to every drummer who puts composition above the strict technique whoís place seems to only belong in a solo aimed at proving superiority over other drummers. It's a high-minded facade hiding the fact that you're the competitive drum jock on the playground trying to knock the fun out of everyone else's play time.
MikeM is my new hero.

You nailed it, end of story.
