After watching in awe that long two part solo Mr. Townsley plays on the Modern Drummer Festival 2003, I am quite surprised to see that there is no thread dedicated to him, one of the most elegant and sublime drummers I have ever heard. I really love the way he sounds contained and free at the same time. Ah. so delicate a drummer. Let's make this thread roll. If you haven`t seen this beautiful and inspiring solo, go to the drummers section and watch both parts. I am sure you won´t forget the beauty this man, Mr. Townsley, is capable of. Brutal beauty, indeed.
