Love that guy and the band. I had an audition with a southern rock band once, and I spent a whole day learning that opening lick in La Grange (and the other two fills in the song for authenticity). Not easy. In the '80s when he played 20" and 18" bass drums, he was one of my influences to go to a 20". Up until that time I was convinced by marketing that two 24" were the only way to go!
