I have never actually heard any of his playing at all.What's funny is that I agree with him. Have you ever listened to the recordings he did of the exercises out of his own book? Any one that involves bass drum work, he can't quite play it. Definitely made me chuckle, the author couldn't even play his own exercises. And it wasn't even *that* hard footwork, at least in a modern context. Damn good player though otherwise.
