    Benny is one of the most famous drummers in the business, the guy has his own Meinl Byzance cymbals, which are the best cymbals I’ve ever heard!

  3. SetToFailure says:

    Oh man… That bass drum sounds so good!
    I only just recently found out about Benny, where has he been? He’s such a good drummer!

    I’m pretty sure this guy didn’t start his life on the planet earth… He’s most certainly an alien.

    Somebody go fetch the rule book.

  10. gshdrums says:

    i can do it now, takes years and years of practice it is odd you just learn to seperate the two….Just practice!!!

  11. Jeremy Foster says:

    I found it hilarious that the first ad that came up watching this video was for contact lenses… Get some contacts Benny!!

  12. chrisneff88 says:

    2:25 is amazing. Slowly speeding up his hands and his feet stay constant. Now that is independence. Not that we didn’t know Benny has loads of that to begin with.

  13. martianshoes says:

    Greb is the most organic player I have ever seen. He knows how to sound good. Just seems to know instinctively…from eons of practice and raw, innate feel. Imagine how many offers he gets to play with high profile actsbands. It seems he uses what rep he has to just do what he wants to do, from a creative standpoint. Damn, I admire that.

  14. kosephdrums says:

  15. capitansurfista says:

  17. HeavyOpera1 says:

    Love this solo. What is the cymbal to his far right?

  18. avrilmedia says:

    haha 5:43 where he throws his glasses off:D great solo btw

  19. ned2one says:

    it could be slightly warped cuz it’s such a thin cymbal and he’s probably been using it for a long time. Then again camera angles have a funny way of doing that too…

  20. OneTwoCee Sanders says:
