Default Re: Dave Weckl

Dave is one of the best out there period. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to him at one of his gig's in St.Louis a few years back by one of his former instructors. He was touring behind his album Snergy at the time. He is not just a phenom on the drums but a great composer of music. Granted, not everyone is into jazz fusion or contemporary jazz or however the industry labels it, keep in mind that Dave and his band create this music together, and each album they have released has been different than the previous one, which is utterly amazing. If you ever get a chance to see the band live, absolutely get there, but dont go just to check out Dave and disect his chop's, check out the whole band. Each of them is a virtuoso in their own right. Truly great artists.
