I agree with Matt's post here. Stan did come back a couple of weeks ago to post some gig pic's. Post #357 http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=42307
Although Stan's appreciation of his craft is way beyond my rock/pop brain comprehension, I've had a few conversations with him that I found to be most insightful & useful to me. He had time for me, even though he knows I don't "get it". I think that's a measure of the man's humility & sense of fellow player empathy. A snob, he certainly is not! He's passionate about his music, yet the occasional transient dickhead takes that as being elitist.
I miss your wizedom Mr. nuance!
