ya... I also heard some ripoffs from some Simon Phillips solos.  Oh well... any news of what he's been doing since?  I wanna hear him play WITH people in a setting.  Little mofo is right.

I read an interview where he said that he really respects guy who play marching percussion because they know all the rudiments.  Hopefully he buckled down and learned them.  You can tell he had a good teacher.  Really good technique and excellent hand/foot coordination.<br><br>that was a good solo.

Yea he was.  I don't like the tuning of the drums.  He should have stopped after the first part where he started doing a bass drum ostinato.  after that it just plain sucks.<br><br>I was playing a lot more rudiments than he was at that age.  I never had a working bass pedal or hi hat until Jr. High though.

that kid is awesome. he went into the Guitar Center Drum Offs a few years back and made it into the national finals in L.A. but I think he got beat out by only a few points...I think Vinnie Colaiuta may have actually judged a few of those...my memory isn't what it used to be.

I saw a kid like this named Roli Garcia Jr. at a "Zildjian Day" in Dallas in the 1980s w/Vinnie, Tony Williams, Simon Phillips, Kenwood Dennard, and Tommy Aldridge.  What a brutal show!  We requested that Vinnie play the 19/16 Greasey groove . . . and he did!<br><br>I wonder what ever happened to that kid?  Google time.<br><br>vcf<br><br>Edit: Here he his and he remembered that gig (I forgot about Louie Bellson).<br><br>http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-2147.html<br><br>Ya know, I later saw some OTHER little kid on some game show type thingy ripping it up on TV named Brooks Wackerman, whom I think is Chad's brother.  More google . . . <br><br>Yep, he's Chad's brother:<br><br>http://www.vater.com/spotlight/artistspot_brooks.html

This is sorta off topic, but does anyone her think that Roger Taylor from Queen is a GREAT drummer? <br><br>Being a drummer meeself, my favorites are:<br><br>John Bonham<br>Terry Bozzio<br>Chester Thompson<br>Roger Taylor<br>Chad Wackerman<br>Phil Rudd (I don't know why, but his drumming's so simple, it's GENIUS!)<br><br>There are many other favorites, but.......

For the love of Jesus on a crutch keep the Neil Peart arguments outta here.<br><br>The drumming on Deathless Horsie... HOLY SHIT.  I've heard that song so many times but last night when I was wasted... Vinnie actually spoke to me.  He said, "listen son, you'll never get within a million miles of playing like this so sit back and hear a true mother fucker lay down some fine licks."  That shit is sick.<br><br>Canarsie... yeah.  A truely badass bit of playing too.  Where does it end!  VINNIE!

I don't know... Dave Weckl can throw down some shit.  I liked that 3 way solo with Vinnie, Dave and Steve.
