Even not so serious drummers should hear it, then maybe they'd be more serious as a result of itI got this video last year on P2P and I was stunned by his awesome technique. Also I was very impressed by his words...full of wisdom and humor. I would say all serious drummers should hear it.
It wasn't just double strokes. He was switching in between singles, doubles and paradiddles. Insane.That double stroke roll he did at the begining was the cleanest roll I've ever heard. He has some great philosophies especially about combine feel, technique and creativity all into one. Man, the drumming world truly lost a treasure when Tony passed on...
Thanks alot for posting this.
As far as I know those are Remo CS Dot, and they're on top.Yes and if you close your eyes its all even. a master of drums.
interesting that he is so against bounce. his toms are quite tight (high) which would produce good bounce even on his floors. maybe he does utilize bounce but not in the more obvious way that others do.
also using brushes on a dotted head is hard because they catch the dot...unless his dot is underneath the skin. just had a look i think it is.
Gee whiz, and I thought that rhythmic phrasing, use of dynamics and musical themes are a big part of musical expression. Obviously I should've known better...Musically, it has absolutely nothing, he's just hitting his drums like an imbecile, which absolutely no musical expression.
