what's technically most difficult at this stage in your carer ?

what haven't you done that you aspire to do ?

who haven't you played with that you would like to and why do you dig them ?

Maybe not what he'd want to talk about these days, I dunno, but it would be nice if he could talk a bit about the craft.

I get the idea of there being plenty of instruction out there, he's not really a teacher, going through the process yourself bla...bla..bla...etc.etc..etc but,

- How he practices and prepares. Various stages in his evolution.
- Really how he learned playing from the beginning. First teachers, schoolbands, big bands. What he found challenging and how he went about things.
- General philosophy of sound and tuning.
- I'd definetly like to know more about various recodings like with Joni, Sting, Herbie, the Reunion album or the Five Peace Band stuff.
- Philosophy of sound, technique, stick design....

Oh, yeah. Why he left Gretsch? (Runs for cover :lol: )

Brought his own drums, too.

I seem to recognize a few other faces on that stage.

Imogen Heap, is she famous ?
I did a session for her when I was working at Miles Copeland's castle in France. ;)
She was eccentric. :)
I come from Tain, Vinnie, Omar, Jeff, Fish, Stewart, and many more...
