And that's cool. I think we all can appreciate total chops bombast while at the same time understand you need to be more Levon Helm to truly be the musician you're supposed to be up on the bandstand.I understand it's a contest, tailor made for showing off chops. I recognize that this kid is amazingly talented and can do things that I can't begin to replicate despite my many more years behind a kit. Congratulations to this drummer and I hope he has many years of success ahead of him. With that said, drums are an accompanying instrument. Flash and drum solos generally bore me, with a few exceptions, unless they're in a musical setting -- and I'm not referring to drum karaoke, playing along to a track. Did nothing for me.
