When I was young, I used to follow all these drummers and then after some time I realized they were (in some part) emulating this dude. I was lucky enough to meet Tony (thanks to the dude on bass in this video, Bunny Brunel) at the Keio Plaza in Japan. Tony was of course kind and cordial when I met him. We didn’t say too much to each other. But he had a depth to his presence that I have not sensed in many people.
