Official Jeff "Tain" Watts Appreciation Thread
Tain is hands down the baddest drummer of the last twenty years, and if you disagree you are wrong. As such, I think we should have a thread to share our favorite mp3s, pictures, stories, etc. Maybe the mods can sticky this one so the board doesn't get cluttered with other Tain threads?

Drummers get broken down into two categories for me. Complexity and Funness.
Bill Bruford is one of my favorites. I'm always into listening to good percussion. Adam, your links are dead. I really wanna hear him.
Check the youtube videos.
Here's another great one; probably the best one even:

Holy ****! From that Tain link, I found a Coltrane video that I had never seen.
