Default Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

Matt Smith's anecdote down their makes a good point - people at some point must be making qualitative judgments on Vinnie as a drummer; the producer/artist listens to his playing and other peoples' opinions and decides that he's the 'best' man for the job.
That doesn't contradict Vinnie's own thoughts own the issue, it's just that there's a distinction to be made between chops and artistry. It is possible to be a superior artist.
