Ok, we were just having fun with the title. ::grin:: I mean it looks like a damn circus is in town. LOL – - -This guy’s got some insane chops. Beyond the chops, how in the world does he do so many stick flips and spins over so many drums at such a fast tempo without messing up one time?!!! – Pure insanity!
On a serious note… let’s hear it for Dylan Elise. What a terrific drummer!
