    Yeah, you don't get a gig with Michael Jackson unless you're one of the most talented musicians on the planet.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I was never a Jackson fan, but geez, he had talent - and it shows in his choice of musicians.
    I watch a lot of drumming, and this was just super tight drumming. Those twirls.. and that thock! finish
    Know Thy Self. Know Thy Law. Do What Thou Wilt.
    But it's buggy! - It's software, dummy, it's a feature..

    Yeah, I've always known it to be a cooler sounding version of "everyone playing exactly in time with each other"

    haha right? I wanted to make sure it was not an actual term for playing ahead of the beat.

    And that last hit always gets me every damn time.
    This was so important but also look at this dude, repeatability is so important too. You know this dude played all these songs until he passed out and woke up still playing them

    My goodness.

    Every single hit he makes is with 100% authority too, I'd bet money that he could play that exact session over again with a blindfold on. He's barely even looking at his drums and playing with pure confidence. So fucking cool.

    His career also includes Madonna, Elton John, Lionel Ritchie, Diana Ross, George Michael and Janet Jackson along with a stint with Cirque de Soleil. That might not be the most metal resume but it's certainly a who's-who list of ultra high profile gigs and massive tours/crowds. And all of those people went with the same guy. Just an unbelievable talent.
