Re: Steve Smith

Stewart is a stylist. He just sounds like him and not really going to change his signature sound/style. Not too many players have that quality, probably because they want to work in as many situations as possible. Nothing wrong with being a Bonham, a Copeland, Bruford or a Keith Moon where the band ...

Erskoman can make any gig sound great. I've seen him play a tribute to John Bonham at New England Conservatory. He was laying it down!
