It was the same way with Buddy Rich, if a lot people told you you were the best drummer in the world it would do something to your ego. I think I would be a prick too if I had to live up to that much pressure.Stu_Strib said:To be as good as Gadd, Weckl, or Vinnie, you gotta be just a bit different than most people. I've heard bad things about all three of these guys as people. I would bet its just their eccentricity, and not any real rudeness. Porcaro came across as rude too, but that was the New Yorker in him probably, heh.
Just think, to be as good as them, you can't quite possibly be a normal 8 to 5 schlubb working with other shlubbs all day (like most of us).
So Dr. Drum, you don't like Gadd or Coliauta? Do you not like drums ;-)
Yeah Vinnie was strong. For that other post to say "he held his own" with Weckl and Gadd, as if they are legends, and he isn't yet was a bit odd.darkcherryfade said:Thank you, but I have my own opinion. I'm not even talking about who did the most of this or that, he just made me feel it the most. Well ok, to say he OWNED it was a bit much, but he shined the most to me. Although Gadd and Weckl were still incredible.
