Some killer soloing from Steve Smith (Journey)

http://www.vicfirth.com/artists/smith.html

Play the QT vid from Drummerlive, he’s got a level of mastery of the instrument, the technique and attitude, that is about as high as anyone in the world. That’s a strong statement, but it fits. Making it look easy is hard, and then giving the person watching and listening the opportunity to peel apart the performance like an onion is harder still. Tony Williams’ playing was like that, for the most part, the same can be said of Neil Peart.
