Re: Joe Morello
Ive been a fan of Joes since i was a teenager and he is definitely one of my favorites. The melodies he plays in solos are incredible. My favorite is all of his drum breaks and solo on the studio recording of Nomad - just brilliance. Actually he sounds like he may have been one of John Bohnhams influences - the solo on Nomad starts very similiar to the original studio recording of Moby Dick. Morello's hands and brain were amazing... I think all those years of him playing violin at a very high level before he picked up the sticks help tremendously on the drum kit and at snare drum rudiments.
