    Been subscribed to this guy forever. Got the CD for a drummer brother-in-law`s birthday. It`s awesome. I love this guy`s non-classical drumming too.

    haha I love the trumpeter who just stares at him... Like WTF you doing here?

    Mad props to whoever figured out the drum music.

    I have mixed emotions. I`m all for new variations on classics. This might be a way to bring classical music to the younger generation. On the other hand, it just doesn`t quite fit. A drummer in an orchestra is like a dentist giving a vision test.

    A.) That was sick.

    B.) What the hell is with the creepy trumpet player to his right that just stares at him the whole time?

    Part of the tech pleasure was that the drumming is done without sheet music, yet he obviously has the full piece in his head.
    I agree that the timbre is wrong for this piece (it overpowers) but kudos none-the-less.

    No. Sorry - Very talented drummer, and the Barber of Seville is a great piece of classical music, but having a drummer, no matter how good, play over a piece of classical music just makes it all sound a bit tacky.
    Plus I can`t imagine it`s going to be something that he`s going to pick up chicks with - Imagine the conversation
    - Hey babe. I play drums
    - Oh wow! Cool. What sort of stuff do you do? Rock? Metal? Indie? Funk?
    - Well, I do a mean paradiddle over an Adiago in G-major...
    - See ya!

    Why so many haters? He`s good, in time and personally although he played over at the beginning he fits in with the rest of it well. It makes it newer, hip even. Youngsters like myself (although I already do) may start listening if it has a good beat behind it. And why would drums make anything tacky? A final rant on not picking up girls...I`d tap that ;)

    sounded pretty awesome, and he was undoubtedly good, but he may have been a bit overpowering over the piece...

    maybe if Mozart had included drums in his piece it would`ve sounded better

    I kind of agree with trello. Except the women part. Because women base all there information on men and who they sleep with on the first talent they mention.

    A tad heavy on the symbols, I reckon.

    He`s great. But, while my first thought was, "this sounds like a good idea and this would end up being epic," I ended up thinking that it isn`t anywhere close to an improvement.

    epic epic epic, i wonder if that`s his usual set up, or if he catered it to the task, i`m referring to the higher tom in the middle of the rack, and the ride cymbal on top of the hi-hat, either way, an innovative arrangement, and yes the man has mad skills

    Although I appreciate the talent this guy has, and although I regularly listen to both rock and classical music types, I don`t really think this works.

    everyone else with such serious expressions on their faces, and the drummer with the biggest smile on his face and black T that makes him look ready to rock with a bunch of overaged punks.
    love it.
