His double bass is great for 14 too, but if you look at the video he's sliding his feet which allows the pedal to play 2 or even 3 strokes on one movement of the leg, like Virgil Donati. His timing is kind of weird or off. If he's gonna play offbeats at least make them sound like they should be there. I play like dennis chambers, Jason Bittner, Geroge Kollias, Steve Gadd, and a few others. I think I could take him or blow him away. If he looked a little more relaxed and had better grooves he would impress me more.
I will post a video but I don't know when. So i will show you then that I could beat him or blow him away.
Yes hurry up - your site on Drummerworld Frontpage is already reserved.

So you play in your mind like Dennis Chambers - just faster I suppose. And you managed also to integrate those slow outdated Steve Gadd Licks also - spiced up with some Virgil odd meters - sounds really interesting.

And everything so relaxed - yes I agree, drumming needed finally reach the definitive level.

So just the real Video is missing. But don't worry, Rob Wallis and Paul Siegel from Hudson Music are on the way. Just have to finish the shooting of the new Thomas Lang DVD. Where do you live? Is there a airport? - we're coming by private Jet and camera team for the News.
