Re: Phil Maturano here!
Hi Phil! I think about it too. Being in my 40s, we did not have such access to people. I was just mentioning in the Steve Hass thread, that there's not enough online info on the guy.
Question. I think about all the easy access to so many great players. I believe that this leads homogenization of drumming styles though. I find these young players with great talent and technique, but they all sound the same. Because of this internet tool, there are more amazing players out there, yet less players with a voice. I think Ronald Bruner Jr is incredible, but honestly I would much rather listen to who he copies(dennis chambers, and billy cobham). I can name 40 or 50 known young players who all sound exactly like whom they admire. Coming from your generation, you have your own sound. That's rare today. What are your thoughts on this?
