Though, I'd like to hear him work in more collaborative settings, as far
as physical dexterity, technique, control and crazy independence goes,
I really enjoyed this display by Thomas Lang.  

Not to mention he makes a 4 pc. kit sound like a 10.  If you're gonna bash,
this is how to do it.

The enthusiasm of oriental audiences is amazing. They get so into it. Like kids in a candy shop for the first time. The whole western music scene is new and fresh enough for them they show an appreciation akin to an early Beatles concert or something. It's exciting in itself.

Friends, you, too, can play drums like this if you eat, sleep, and breathe the instrument eight hours a day.

I remember seeing Virgil for the first time; a MD festival I think it was, and he said when he wakes up he slips out of bed and goes right to the drums. It certainly shows with these guys. The dedication. The time. What they think, they execute.

It is awesome to behold.

Keen observation, Asaph.

I notice that this is the case even with a foreign
form of entertainment being performed by the
Japanese themselves.

My wife is half Japanese and has been there many
times. Once while walking through the downtown streets
of Tokyo she stopped to watch some street dancers
that were break dancing. She said their performance
was horrific but the native crowd was going nuts!

They highly appreciate foreign and the aspects of
foreign entertainment over there. It would be a blast
to be able to perform there I would imagine.

First off I love the color of the drums! That guy made me seasick! I love the stick and other parlor tricks. Like slowing one set of limbs while accelerating the other. that guy is outrageous! And he actually grooved for more than 2 measures at a time so I give home a 9 1/2! That hihat and bass independent of the soloing was great. I want to hear his music now. I wanted to dislike him but he won me over.

Lang has apparently played with many artists of note but, when you search for things on yt 99% of what you get is solo drumming. stOrk is definitely not my thing, musically. I haven't seen much else out there from a band perspective. The Paul Gilbert band. Not sure how his music is categorized.

Yep, On the money again, Asaph.
That's a pet peeve Pete and I
both have with Thomas.  Hardly
anything but ripping drums all over
the place.  There are some, but not
a lot of collaborative efforts by
comparison.
