Well said sir.

Indeed it would be a boring existence if we all played the same. 99.9% of the greats, wouldn't be great....they just be great copiers. We wouldn't have threads running to over 20 pages long, we wouldn't need this forum to discuss gear and how best to acheive 'your' sound....we'd all play the same gear, the same way. And above all, we wouldn't be discussing what drummers are to our particular taste. No-one HAS to like a particular drummer, but anyone who's been playing at the top level for so many years is certainly worthy of respect, even if you don't dig their particular style.
