I recently obtained the Halloween DVD  and was watching the video of Dancin Fool video. The  band on the album has Vinnie Coliuta playing drums. The gentleman in the video holds his sticks different than Vinnie ( Vinnie use traditional grip, stick between the thumb and  third finger on the left hand. Whose is that guy?

So if it aint Vinnie, and the song is DF, and that song was written with Bozzio in the band,  i would say it is Terry...

I don't seem to have a copy of the entire show, but I have an MPEG of "Rollo" from that show. And sure enough, that's Vinnie. He's got a beard and is wearing a white crew-neck shirt and a pair of big ol' tinted seventies-type glasses.<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>And he reeks of garlic. Even through the tv screen... ;)<br>

I've seen plenty of 'drum' dvds where Vinnie sits really low. I think in recent years he has his throne a bit higher. Trivia, I know.

Incidentally, the Live at Ronnie Scott Jeff Beck dvd is sensational. £10 from amazon, blu ray. Bargain.
