Cris: When you did the Keith Emerson '3 Fates' album, that was some seriously busy playing.
Troy Luccketta (drummer for Tesla): Ain't that a beautiful piece of work? I'm so proud of that. You know that's where my technique really came into play. So thank goodness I have enough of that. Cause I never did the full on college thing. I never went to North Texas or Berklee or anything like that. I was always playing. Since I was 23 until now I've been busy thank goodness. I didn't have an opportunity to just take off and put all of this time into studying.
So it has just been over the years, listening to records. And its continued. I got up this morning and I was going through Rich Redmond's workouts. I take as much information as I can get and I apply it over a period of time. I'll absorb it kind of slowly, but it's being absorbed. And it can naturally come out in my playing and get used when necessary.
