Re: PHOTOS: Shannon Forrest's new drum kit with TOTO!

Re: Allan Holdsworth R.I.P.

https://youtu.be/LKiq1e40CIM April 3rd at Alvas. I listened through the first 10 minutes of this. Actually, I didn't think Allan played badly - his solo wasn't as blistering as it's been in the past on that tune, but it's not like he was missing chord changes, or anything.

Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

Do you think my man can read with good taste and musicianship ? :o Dam'... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT8f7ErX42I Really noticing how little he moves his hands through all his fills.

I remember my first exposure ...

I feel bad for him there. In the time since Neil's foray into big b...
