Well, the latter part is right. But how on earth do you reckon him a more technical drummer than Dave Weckl, Vinnie Colaiuta, Buddy Rich, Bill Cobham, Virgil Donati, Thomas Lang, Jo Jo Mayer or similar? He's not even close. And if you're talking about actual clean physical motion he's still not a patch on Vinnie, or Joe Morello, or Jim Chapin... or any number of great modern jazz players.
