Isn't it interesting how often audiences have no reaction to musical parts of drum solos, and then they heap praise on the noisiest parts.

Appreciating finesse requires an educated ear. The opposite of which is why hammering and bashing drums became so popular.

That’s possible, but isn’t it also possible that people are clapping at the loudest/noisiest parts because that’s the dynamic high point/climax of the solo usually? I personally think it would be a little weird if they clapped anywhere else. And really the whole thing is masterful, if it was really necessary to clap at everything musical and masterful then the audience should never shut up lest they be branded tasteless heathens.

Tell ya what I got the feeling he thought it was a sheet gig no one was watching and didn't seem all that enthused to be in the West Virginia High School- just semi- burned -out. Pushing the bass player so fast it was unbelievable (or worse. The Hall sounded strangely empty altho the applause seemed normal.
