Ditto. Bobby has this great feel and a subtlety that rises above most glam drumming. Like Round and Round--all the cymbal chokes, the little hop on the bass drum at 3:13, and the directions he chooses up and down the toms.

First glam drummer I ever heard play the ride cymbal on the upbeat too (Back for More).

I remember being in 5th grade and calling my friend Joel--"We have to figure out how to play this upbeat ride thing!" I don't think I even knew the word "upbeat" yet, to be honest. It's funny remembering where you first learned certain things.

Thanks, Bobby.
