Yeah, I've been listening to him with Transatlantic. I really like his playing, he's a monster on the drums.

His playing on all the Santana shit is great but Caravanseri and Lotus are my favorites.<br> <br>I think sometimes what it would have sounded like if he played on the Waka and Wazoo albums instead of Dunbar.


Oh fuck yes!!!! He is without question my #1 influence!

These lists always contain a few fatal flaws. Don Alias in the most skilled is pretty funny. Great percussionist, lousy kit player. Thanks for the mention of Rod Morgenstein who is also one of my favorites. Others not yet mentioned are Graham Lear, Jojo Mayer and the most technically proficient guy I've ever seen Thomas Lang.

Oh I don't know I think Mayer and Lang are pretty much evenly matched!

Yeah, I wouldn't argue the point. Mayer is just amazing. Lang may be just a bit "flashier". how about that?

-How do you know the stage you're playing on is completely leveled?
-The drummer will be drooling equally from both sides of his mouth
