My general theory is never to judge someone based on one bad experience. Especially with the wealth of awesome-ness outside of it.

I'm also surprised to hear that he's been guitar'ing lately, since I've not heard anything of that sort myself.

Yep, Fair call. I was pretty excited about seeing him, and don't get me wrong, he's an amazing player, I was listening to Zen off Alien just yesterday freaking out at his chops... It was just a touch disappointing in the end. Hopefully it motivated a bunch of kids in there anyway.

No doubt. I'd be pretty ticked off if I finally made it out to a clinic and he was dragging his feet. I only said that in the hopes that it didn't completely sour you on the guy, y'know?

I love Gene's playing with Death and SYL, but I went to see that cartoon band he plays with, and was completely underwhelmed. He looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there, and his playing was devoid of any kind of energy. Maybe my expectations were too high, but man... He set the bar really low. Of course, he was playing cartoon metal music, with the cartoon playing on a big screen above the band, so maybe he thought he just needed to "get by" since all the punters were watching the images on the screen.

I 'discovered' him only recently (I'm a drum beginner - 1 year playing - and wasn't very much interested in drum(mer)s before I started playing drums). Judging from the YouTube snippets of his DVD, he's an extremely nice modest guy who loves to share technique and stuff. It's shocking how relaxed his playing is, totally effortlessly. For his genres, he shows remarkable creativity. I'm not (at least yet) really into extreme drumming (as a listener, although this fascinates me purely technically/in a physical aspect), but Gene is special. What drummer puts on foot weights on gigs???? Hahaha, that's... Gene. No further explanation needed.

Update 08/14/2011
Footweights have arrived (2x 5 lbs) yesterday - this weight is more than enough to make a serious difference (I've underestimated those!). Less beneficial for heel-toe but the more for heel-up. Thanks Gene, cool practice idea.
