Re: Vinnie Colaiuta
DrummingApril, that's just silly.
Would you call Mike Keneally a non-musician?
I used to think Marco was JUST a chops monster.
He's not. The dude can groove a rock tune just fine. Check out his work with Paul Gilbert on dang-near pop-tunes.
I will admit Vinnie is probably the sickest, most versatile drummer out there. To go from Zappa to Faith Hill (?????) and sound perfect in every context is amazing.
But don't go assuming things about the chops guys, cuz in at least this one instance, you're dead wrong.
