Ya'll are just throwing out any 'ole good drummer's name. Can you back up the cymbalist claim with a video of their cymbalic skills?

Tony's cymbal playing with Miles in the 1960s, and even the sound of the cymbals he chose, completely changed how drummers approach cymbals. The sounds he achieved on "Miles Smiles" is truly amazing.

Manu Katche was a big deal mostly in the 90's with his splashes. Along those lines, Carter Beauford made me rethink hi hat patterns.
