    Chris is one of my all-time favorites as well. That quote is from his performance/speech at the 2005 Modern Drummer awards ceremony, and it's about how after the As The Palaces Burn album he was beating himself up too much about the areas of his playing that were bad. He realized that he needed to change his philosophy and just enjoy playing drums and focus on where he was good. Definitely a great quote.

    If someone tells you that you have potential, just keep in mind that potential is a French word meaning "You ain't worth squat yet".

    If at 1st you don't succeed, skip the blonde and find a redhead.
