About normal for most the drummers I know :grin:

I love Stewart because he was famous for getting under Sting's skin.

Drummer/Percussionists that have really moved me... Copeland, Gadd, Keltner, Elvin Jones, and Evelyn Glennie

Well said Ed.

Stewart Copleand is a legend. Him and Colaiuta are the embodiment of tasteful drumming. Love those guys to bits!

His Spyro the Dragon OST was one of the highlights of the golden age of platform games. Brilliant soundtrack. It has Kurzweil K2500 sounds all over the place :inlove:

I read an interview with Stewart Copeland years ago. Apparently, Sting and Stewart had a Synclavier vs. Fairlight rivalry. Stewart's stance in the interview was "my system worked." The other interesting trivia was he mentioned starting out at home with a reel-to-reel with a track overdub or bounce technology, I want to say Sound-on-Sound, but not Simul-Sync. So, he had to learn to play to compensate for the record and playback head delay.
