Who do you think is the next up coming Virgil?

My drum teacher said apparently Thomas Lang is the "new virgil"...but Thomas is 37 so that's hardly "new". Any up and coming new guys that can totally rip?

I think there's a certain number of drummers who have excelled in the past years above the rest and are what I refer to as "contemporary drummers". They're the likes of Terry Bozzio, Virg, Thomas Lang, Marco Minemann and Grant Collins. The ones who have taken the drumkit to a new polirhytmic dimension within itself, besides having outstanding raw technique.
Who is the next Virg? Who knows but he was probably the first to be exposed to the big public, to remind people that there's another level of things and that the best drummer is the one who studies and plays the most. One thing's for sure, there will be another drummer who will amaze us in the following years because of the inspiration of these first contemporary drummers and I'll gladly welcome him or them Everything else is mere speculation.

Lang can do alot technique-wise, but i really dont think he has much musical sense or soloing taste/feeling. I bought his DVD and there are good exercises but it's hard to sit through his songs or his solos.
Virgil is always raving about Marco Minnemann, i bought his DVD too, and although his music was strange at times, it's definitely better than Langs. Also Minnemann soloing is just better overall, and the guy is SO young (around 30) for that amount of talent. When he's Virgils age (no offence Virgil!) who knows what he will be able to do!! I dont think there is anyone one else that age or younger that shows this much potential.

Virg still Virg and he is still Breaking down the barriers and setting new boundaries, it is very cool to read the reviews at the Sabian site, where EVEN the Sabian Execs. are quoted as saying Virg is STILL the Guy pushing the boundaries Physically and musically past present establishments and that he IS still the most disciplined and dedicated drummer out there and that is why he is still breaking New Ground with Amazing results. Some of the students at a recent PIT clinic were quoted as saying "IS there actually
anything you CANNOT! do when you play?" and "IS there anything that you actually feel you need to learn?" One Sabian official said that many of the guy's were actually having a hard time believing what they heard and saw and that someone was actually PLAYING this stuff! He just keeps on going and going and BLOWING minds along the way.
