of him, I have totally rethought my practice regimen. His work ethic
is inspirational, and I'm scared to see what he learns in the next
I saw Virgil play in Austin on the G3 tour with Vai and Sheehan.
His performance was beyond words. I have played the drums for about
10-15 years now and it takes a lot to make me drool over someone's
ability. After watching him play all I could do was thank God for
Virgil and for allowing me to watch the Steve Vai of the drum world.
It was amazing to see and hear the man. If you have never heard
him play and he is in your area and you don't go hear him then you
should not even call yourself a drummer, because someone with his
ability comes along every million years. He will inspire you to
play and send you back to the woodshed to practice until your hands
and feet fall off. Thank you Mr. Donati for gracing the world with
your musical ability.
I must've watched that MD festival video a hundred times and I
still can't believe my eyes. Virgil is the best in the universe.
I don't think he is human, he must come from another planet!

I just saw the Modern Drummer festival video and I must say I'm
shocked! Totally unbelievable! When I'm on the net I always look
for new and interesting drummers. Since a minute ago it seems like
I really found the drummer I was looking for!
Saw him last night in Toronto, he blew me away. He was the most
memorable thing from the show. Think about it, Satriani, Vai, Petrucci,
Sheehan, Portnoy, and all I remember is Virgil.
-A Canadian Fan
I would like to say that after finally getting my video tape of
Virgil from the 1997 Modern Drummer festival, I am going to burn
my drumset! Virgil Is a true genius. His drumming abilty is awesome.
Keep up the amazing work!
-A Die Hard Fan
If there is truly a god of the drums he is it. He is no dought
the best now and for ever.
Saw the man yesterday at the NEC, Birmingham, UK. I have never
seen or heard anything like it before. Cant wait to see him again.
Easily the best in the world.
Virgil Donati. That guy! I’m not one of those guys that’s
really into playing a lot of drums or doing the whole solo kind
of thing. Once again, I like playing the song, I like playing the
music. But Virgil... that boy is stupid. I mean he does things I
couldn’t even dream of.

I mean look at Virgil - Imagine how much he'd have to practice
to be that good!
-Dave Weckl (In a Drumscene magazine
This man is truly a genius, no doubt about that!!
Man, where the hell did he get feet like that?!
-Austin Texas Fan
I would just like to say, that Virgil is an amazing guy on and
off the kit!
Virgil totally smoked the kit in Atlanta, GA! DOUBLE STROKIN' KICK
The Jack Butler on the drumkit, diabolical!
He is the best drummer I have ever heard!
He's got more muscle on his feet than a pro European soccer player.
Virgil has inspired me to take my drumming in a whole new direction!
I have never heard someone play like him before, and I doubt there
will be any challangers to his throne in the future.
I would swap my hands for his feet!
Hell, I'm STILL trying to figure out what he was playing!
There is no doubt, no debate...Virgil Donati is clearly the world's
greatest drummer ever. Like Mohammed Ali in boxing, Bruce Lee in
Martial Arts, Virgil Donati is in Drumming.
Virgil is pure MAGIC. His ability to successfully combine musicality
and showmanship is unmatched. It is an honor to say that I have
shaken his hand!
It's refreshing and inspiring to see somebody with such ability,
intelligence, imagination and dedication as Virgil's. His determination
to expand his craft beyond the limits perceived by other musicians
is the mark of a true master. Watching him perform, apart from being
a total mindfuck, has been one of the few experiences I have had
of being in the presence of greatness.
