But despite that the fact I don't get it, or see the point, and I can't figure out why anyone would want to follow him or buy his stuff, I have to agree with Arky in that he is inspiring people to get into drumming, and that is not a bad thing.
I'd rather buy Jojo Mayers Secret Weapons or a Steve Gadd DVD or something... Something where I'll learn from a REAL pro who's had experience in every catergory and looked up to by loads of people.
I still don't understand Cobus... I still think he's had a lesson before and I find it shocking that he's never played with people before, I mean if you're going to do a DVD or something atleast play with people first.
