Ask 10 people (nondrummers) who Steve Gadd is. Then ask them who Tommy Lee is. Then compare bank accounts and you'll see why he does this stuff.pdp 9091 said:thats how drummers like him get well like from non drummers. Alot of fancy tricks with lights and swining from platform to platform above the crowd on risers and what not. If a drummer is really so great they dont have to add all that stuff in. You dont see steve gadd on bungee chords swinging from drumset to drumset with pyros attached to his drums.
but you fail to see that stellar brilliant people are less drawn towards awards or money. the satisfaction of doing what he loves keeps him doing it on and on day and night .......... not only in music in every field .... Example Grigory Perelman the russian mathematician who has supposedly solved the almost 100 yrs old poincare conjecture ( prized :$1,000,000) has even refused the Fields medal ( the Nobel equivalent in Maths ) ......and the dollars in other prizes...... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grigori_Perelman (do read what he is doing now).....bighaibigdrums said:
I like Tommy Lee too.......but thats just rediciulous. Go to Gadd's website, and look at how many recordings he is on, and how many different artist, who I'm sure sold records in the 10's of millions. If Gadd only got a dollar from each he's still a very wealthy man.bighaibigdrums said:
LMAO!!! First of all, you have no idea what either man's financial situation is like. For all you know Tommy is bankrupt and doing these reality shows to keep himself afloat.bighaibigdrums said:
