watched the DVD last night. Yeah, Patrick really got shortchanged with the camera angles. Nevermind his appeal with the ladies, he's a great musician to watch perform. He truly enjoys playing drums. He is so tuned in to his instrument and expressing his every emotion through his drumming. Individual expression yet it primarily serves the band as a whole and the song at hand. Unfortunately the DVD captures none of this.
Yes, Patrick is phenominal. His style is so great, and he does so much, but at the same time, if you're not paying attention to him, you forget how detailed and ridiculously good his drumming is on everything. It's amazing how a drummer can play so much and so detailed (while not overplaying), yet it's not obvious or distracting. One of the best drummers of this generation.
