I’m really glad Dave Weckl and Vinnie and the other great prog players are doing their thing. Weckl in particular is just inspiring with how deep his groove is, even in 17/16 time playing polyrhythms down the toms in 32nd notes. LOLCompared to some metal and prog guys this isn't much at all.
But I SURE don’t ever want to have to haul that much gear, or learn those ridiculous drum parts. Jesus. No thank you.
