Cool info Skippy! Although I think they would have been more impressed with Dave Lombardo or Joey Jordinson, not in skills but in maintaining a
maniac pace for such durations. Those 2 guys incorporate both feet a lot more than Burke. Still, I had not seen Burke and I dig his style, so
Oh and BunE....smokin'!!
Mike Portnoy was already posted but I love him more in LTE than in DT, well, he departed from DT last week, so....
He's my fav, maybe there's are bunch of better ones, but I love Mike Portnoy, even when he's a chicken with eartquakes and was scared to death the
last time Dream Theater played here

Hee hee now that was entertaining! I saw a lot of Farley and a little bit of Will Ferrel(the face)! What's funny is this almost seems like a SNL
skit, but that drummer is serious and thinks he's got mad skills. I'll give the guy a salute for originality!

Glad you enjoyed it. I wish Spock's Beard's The Light from the Don't Try This At Home video was available as there's a neat solo with Neal, the
frontman, playing the drums and Nick on a bongo, then they play together. Nice little solo in the middle of a very cool tune, that is if you like
prog(A.K.A. weird music). When Neil left the band Nick came out from behind the drums - similar to Genesis post Peter Gabriel - and is now the
frontman, playing guitar, keys and some drums, hence why the drum duel with Jimmy Keegan. Multi-talented buggers like him and Neal Morse piss me off
as it's hard enough to play one instrument well and they do many.
Well, I've done my job here. Now I get to sit back and enjoy the videos as I haven't watched them yet, I just looked to see who was posted and went
from there. Now, if someone decides to put up Meg White, well, we are going to have some "issues" LOL!
It's titled A Collection Of Great Drummers yet I will put up a song I did way back in the early 90's. I don't consider myself great at all but what
the hell, IMO we did some mildly interesting hard rock, especially considering the time period. Sound quality is, well, there really is no quality to
this as it was recorded on videotape, but you'll get the idea. Never mind the pics in the video, they are just there as filler.
