You know MD lists many different drummers in the reflections section, and then the person they interview just say what he(or she) thinks about this drummer....
Virgil Donati;
"Yeah Iīve seen his band Planet X a couple of times when I was in L.A. These guys move fast. Virgils feet are just rediculous and his hands donīt stop either. Sometimes you just see cymbals flying all over the place. And when he goes off stage he just starts pouring water down his pipe. Maybe thats the secret"....and a bit more I canīt remember from the top of my head.

Here is what Joey Jordison said in the March 2001 issue with Weckl on the cover and a transcript of Dogboots by the way.

"I saw him a couple of times when we were in L.A.
He makes your mouth drop. What he plays doesnīt seem humanly possible. And his band Planet X moves fast. They are all screaming players. They make your head spin.

Virgils feet are just rediculous, and his hands don't stop either. he'll play a drumsolo and youu can't see his arms; it's just cymbals flying all over the place. He gets off the set and start pouring water down his throat. That's what ive been missing: It took me 25 years to learn to drink water. I see players like Virgil and I wonder what's the secret. And then I see him guzzling water. I used to like that caffeine / sugar rush, drinking cokes all day. But now it's all about water. Water, water, water."

May I add a little comment myself?
I don't think the secret is water.... I think it is practice.
