ZZ Top would not be proud, but what's up with the Gold jackets? More like the the drummer is with the wrong band........to funny. Frankie Vally meets ZZ Top.

It is mesmerizing. I don't know how many people go to watch a drummer but I would go see this guy.

Watched it again seems like Chris Farley playing drums. Tommy Boy got the beat.

Sorry but I couldn't stand him. Too much of something is just no good, he didn't know when to quit.

that guy was getting down, and yes that band sucks fosho... lead guitar missed many notes... I have attempted to play drums over the past year or so... and I have mucho respect for that guy. I watched it twice and I did not see him drop any sticks, even through all his motions.. Not one.

Impressive thanks for posting.

I disagree.

I've played drums for 30+ years here...that guy is a moron. He didn't capture the essence of the song, with the hi-hat opening at the right time. He was simply interested in the "look at me" element. THAT sort of thing is why they don't call drummers "musicians."

Save it for the solo, Ringo.

He is appealing to the masses, not the drum experts. Experts in anything can see what the "regular" people can't.

If by "appealing" you mean "showing off," then I'd agree. I've seen tons of these folks--frustrated at their day job, and using the weekend band stage to fulfill illusions of grandeur. A small amount of it would have been tasteful perhaps, and would have gotten the same point across. But this guy is simply showing off, and the song suffers IMHO. I still say he should save it for the solo.

Here's a dude that does this tastefully, and without distracting from the song.

Looks like he took drum line talents and applied it to a trap set.;?
