Default Re: "Musicians music"

Well it's not that I don't appreciate the chops and I understand the business side of these events because it helps to sell instruments and other items.

I would just rather hear a drummer serving the overall musical picture of a band than music that's written specifically for a drum solo. Think - Stairway to Heaven vs. Moby Dick and you can kind of see what I mean. The compositions are vastly different.

I am blown away by the chops but not the music...
