I can't say this guy is in the same techincal league as any of the drummers put forth thus far, but he was different at the time - some called him
the human drum machine then, lol...I know the real drummers here are going to kill this, but up it goes...
I like your choice of the word "efficient" in describing Gavin Harrison. Everything he does looks so effortless and smooth. I saw PT in Seattle a
couple of years ago; and the audience went crazy, gave a standing ovation, after Anesthetize.
I just heard he'll be giving a clinic in Vancouver (not too far from me) in late October...I hope I can get in to see it.
I'll see your human drum machine & raise you a God-like human drum machine.
The style of music that he plays may not be everyone's cup of tea but I don't think anyone can deny the amount of talent that it requires.
I love drummers who can actually play jungle. It is right up there with metal and the freakiest jazz in terms of speed, accuracy and power.
I read an interview with Flo Mounier where he talks about having to do exercise to be able to play like he does. The drumming we see in this day and
age is almost as much a sport as music. These guys have full separation between all four limbs, can roll and blast faster than some early machine guns
could fire and play hour long sets doing so. That one solo vid I posted above of Flo actually goes on for 17 minutes. Lets see those preening fou fou
guitarists do that.
