Well, how do you define "good musicianship"?Good musicianship? Not really. Good entertainment? Yes indeed.
Yeah, people are ripping on his "musicianship", but I'd bet dollars to donuts there are VERY few players who can pull off that kind of performance and still keep time.Yepsk, that's the video I thought it was going to be. I saw several of Zoltan's videos several months ago so I had a hunch it was one of them. Say what you will, that man is an entertainer! I would kill to be able to play with that much enthusiasm and confidence but I am nowhere near that coordinated. Wish I was. That kind of showmanship drew me to drums in the first place. Kudos to Zoltan for pulling that off so effortlessly.
True. He's getting paid to entertain. Earning every dollar as far as I can tell.Aw, come on, that's just a bit of fun. I bet the audience lapped that up. He's not out to impress drummers (why would you?), he's putting on a show. In other words, he's doing his job, period!
This. Even some of most showy players I've seen would have a hard time pulling that off.Yeah, people are ripping on his "musicianship", but I'd bet dollars to donuts there are VERY few players who can pull off that kind of performance and still keep time.
NOTE: I didn't necessarily say it was bad. He keeps time throwing his leg in the air so he deserves credits for that. But to me, this isn't necessarily good musicianship. A good musician not only knows how to do what is neccisary for the song, but also knows how to add something to the music. In my opinion at least. That is something this drummer does not do, instead he chooses to play an acrobatic act. Which does absolutely nót mean I don't respect that, beceause it is very entertaining to watch.Well, how do you define "good musicianship"?
