Of all the performances ever - on any of the Modern Drummer series- Dave's was the one that got me in the gut like nothing else ( Nate Townsley's is a distant second... )Lol yep, a friend of mine calls him a caveman probably because of his energy and very expressive facial contortions ;D
Did you notice Mike Mangini in the audience.
Yeah, his name is Dave Dicenso. He's an astonishing player and teacher. He's professor of drums at Berkley I believe. http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Dave_DiCenso.html
Monster pulse, creativity, fluidity, effortless power & total dynamic control.
..... through all the pyros, he never lets us lose the head bob.
