Where the Heck is Vinnie Colaiuta?

by James Palmer
(Birmingham, England)

Vinnie Colaiuta

Vinnie Colaiuta

Where is Vinnie Colaiuta? Where is Chad Smith? Ringo Star shouldn't be in top 50. I just don't understand some people. I am confused and annoyed after looking at this list.

Ringo star? seriously? I'm not being funny, I don't know half these drummers, so I am not going to judge them, But according to this list, Ringo Star is a better drummer than Vinnie Colaiuta? What the actual heck? Some people are crazy.

Just because you are notorious doesn't make you good at what you are notorious for. A crazy world we live in.

You are completely right. Sometimes being famous is not all there is, but there are times when you get so notorious because you are freaking good. Just saying.

OK After Looking at You Tunbe Videos ansd Seeing Vinnie on Tour with Sting Playing His Ludwig USA CUSTOMSin Black Sparkle Now hes on tour with Herbie HANCOCK on Tour and on video using YAMAHA MABLE CUSTOMS and OAK CUSTOMS. I Heard from cats in LA HE was very unhappy with LUDWIG and as for PAISTE I don't get it HIs A CUSTOMS from ZILDJIAN were SLAMMIN I DO NOT LIKE THE SOUND OF HIS PAISTES they sound THIN and hollow no sustain but its my opinion on that only. He said that LUDWIGS didn't cut it. they would'nt project. And FELL FLAT and would not hold their Tuning which was very limited. He have to change heads often and diffulcult to tune. And YAMAHA were the BEST SOUNDING TUNING DRUMS HE EVER PLAYED OK PAGE 2
