Well, offer him a deal!  How much can he be earning with Rick K. and The Allnighters?   8)

Max Roach is the man.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

I'll admit the guy comes off a bit like Chris Farley. Reminds me of the Muppets Drummer!

:) I'm no Buddy Rich, Philly Joe Jones, Art Blakey, or Jack DeJohnette, but I can hold my own. I haven't played probably in 15 years, so I'm probably pretty terrible now. Percussion isn't my main instrument anyway, I've been playing the guitar for 20 years.

I somehow learned drums magically after not being able to coordinate for years. I do great at stuff like the MC5 on drums, haha.

Ah, yes, Elvin Jones, one of the grand masters of the polyrhythm. 8)
