    This is great! Thanks for posting. I don't have an hour to watch the whole thing right now, but I WILL come back to check out the whole thing when I have time.
    BTW I saw John McLaughlin last week with Chick Corea; Brian Blade was on drums, that cat is unreal!

    Memories!

    Quick Oberservations:

    • They're all so damn young!
    • Billy's beating the livin' crap out of those drums!
    • He used to play a massive kit. I was shocked to see only a 5 piece.
    • Fusion has changed dramatically!
    • They didn't waste anytime taking things to a technical climax. I love the 4 to 6 interplay and all the various accent patterns overtop.

    Great post. I'll also be back to listen to more. Good stuff!

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
