Default 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?

Have you listened to Tain, or did you just name a drummer that you've heard of? I'll post some mp3s of Tain doing what he does, hold on...

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.
