thanks roger. that's a great list. i agree with some of them and want to go and buy them. others i already have. who was drumming on stings album (no4)? was it vinnie?
if so i love the work vinnie did in ten summers tale.

Yes, Vinnie Colaiuta played on "Ten Summoner's Tales". Omar Hakim played on both "Dreaming of the Blue Turtles" (sting's first solo) album & "Bring on the Night" album/video. Manu Katche played on a lot of Sting's solo work as well.

Roger, welcome to Drummerworld! This is a great place to be!

Sure that the best way to be better in french is to come here, and you are good already so it will be not too difficult for you.

Have fun.

Hi Roger,

Great videos...Great music!

I envy you for your ability to perform with such talented musicians. I also envy your clean, speedy left hand! :)

I particularly enjoyed the Un Jour Ailleurs video. Great 3/4 groove.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Hey Rockinrider,

Man, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your great compliments on my drumming, thanks !!!
You know, my left hand doesn't do what I would like, I hear things, but my technical is very limited, but thanks Man.

Take care and see you around.

Roger.
PS : left hand, see Vinnie, "Tain" and Buddy Rich for exemple, that's the real deal !!! :)

Yeah great stuff you did at Musik Messe, I like when you ask to the audience to clap the hands while you playing some great latin stuff, that's is the music for me.

You know Hardy, GREAT !!!

I'll be in NYC april 19th, then Princeton/NJ the 20th, Chicago 17th and 18th, Canada, Boston then west coast...

Back home May 1st.

All right, take care Bro' and have fun, I'm sur you will.

Roger, I have a question for you, Who is, in your opinion, the best drummer ever? You may be very good but you are not allowed to say yourself.

Ahaahahahaahaa, you make me laugh here Vinnysimmo !!! :)
Thanks for your message.

In my humble opinion I would say that Vinnie is the Man, no contest, he's the Man.

Take care.
