Totally agree. I reckon the thread title was probably just poorly worded.Either way, it wasn't a drum off. I don't get why anyone would think there was a "winner" when it was clear it was 3 friends playing together.
Am I the only one here who finds Mr. Gold Jacket funny?.. I bust up every single time I watch it. LOLI'm wonder which video appears in more threads on here: That one or Mr Gold Jacket?
Yes. That's the most musical bit.But when the Gadd-father goes to that cow bell groove? Forget about it!! It's a groove so thick I turn green with envy.
Exactly - I couldn't have written it better. Actually, I quote Weckl in saying: 'Playing the drums is not a sport, it's an art-form"That's not what this was....at all.
First of all,this was the tail end of a Buddy Rich Tribute concert,evidenced by the presence of Buddys big band and Buddys daughter Cathy as MC.
Secondly,this was not a "drum off",which are competitions,which this clearly.....is not.
This was 3 of the best players on the planet,playing together in a pre- rehearsed series of solo's,patterns and collective playing as a unit.
This wasn't about who's better,and there clearly is no "winner" here,no trophy,no prize.Those guys weren't competing with one another,they were playing TOGETHER with one another.
Just 3 guys who have a great deal of mutual respect for each other,giving the audience some of their best solo's,and collective chops.
Context is everything.This was about entertaining an audience, who for the most part,"gets it",and expected the very best.....and got it.
