Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

Conquer the World and Far More are just SICK tunes... LOVE Far More...bass line on Conquer and VCs hat work is stunning...when was the last popish tune that allowed drums to stretch out so far...some of those fills are ridiculous. The opening hat lick reminded me of Michael McDonald's The Enemy With...

Re: Official Virgil Donati thread

One of the best reviews Ive read... "Two listens so far. Not really digging the tunes. In This Life is a must have. The Dawn of Time classical vibe is amazing. The new album has so many amazing moments. Gummy bear stuff. Stretching the groove any which way. He’s a wizard! No tunes that are melo...

Re: Official Virgil Donati thread

Did someone hijack VD's YTube acct because most of this LP is posted under his name! Why would he do this? Is this the new strategy...pour years of your life into a project and spend a ton of cash only to give it away for FREE? We are living in wrong times...this is seriously bad insects... I admit,...

Re: Assorted videos / YouTube thread

Not sure the "bad rap" on Portnoy...you know what kind of gonads it takes to leave Dream Theater? Seriously...he gave up his Linus blanket to jump into the dark cold lake of unknown. Dude is an artist... Loved that Matt G tune...so clean, such a tight perfectionistic drum sound and executi...

Re: Remembering Kim Plainfield

Kim is as good as anyone...his drums sound great too... note his volume control during the bass solo...super musical solo...when you ask a drummer to sum up one's experience and they nail the core element of passion for music, privilege to play, and the required commitment (discipline) to consistent...
