I agree. Love that drum track ... and each time he plays the signature fills there are slightly different nuances. His line on Peg is legendary - those little hi hat accents ...

Judging by the posts here, it seems not too many here are enthusiastic about him because he's a more subtle and musical drummer than a "drummy" drummer. He played some nice fusion flash on Steve Khan's Some Arrows album but that's not a very well-known disc.
