There is a fine line between what one person interprets as putting someone down. You started trashing people who you know nothing about because they do not agree with you.

You guys are nothing but blowhards. What you play with your local jazz band, I am impressed. Or know do not tell me you actually got some guys together to record an album. The locals really like your playing GREAT! I am really impressed now. AH you have read many books on what a REAL drummer is, I see lots of head knowledge. It hurts to know you will never have the stature of certain artists that you like to put down.
Because you are doing exactly what you are protesting against.
