^ the dotted eighth note hi-hat pattern in 'Eleven' is just bonkers.

Yeah that was pretty crazy. I like he spells it out.
Not terribly complicated but probably a bitch to actually get comfortable with.

Well, Steve's right, the dotted eighths are not hard to understand. To play them over an 11/8 groove, however. Wowzah.

Whatever Vigil has inside...whatever THAT is, every publisher and drug company is
trying to reproduce, especially in America! If the graduation numbers in many US
high schools is even half accurate, they need to get some Virg inside of them!
He has a real depth and humility about him...same guy I hung out with for a day
over 10 years ago watching Vinnie play with Brian Bromberg in LA.

Virg's drum sound here (above clip) is insane...bass drum/snare/hat balance kills.
toms are power and clean...possibly the best i ever heard

What blows me away w VD is his touch...how he can fly at high speeds
then transition with such sensitivity and touch...this clip demo's this...
just before the break @2:24 for example;

A really out there solo towards the end but also crazy intensity along the way.
