Practice: How much time and where?
Joe Morello

Bill Stewart

One of my students passed this video along to me...I'd not seen this but am now absolutely enthralled at his time keeping and musical chops.  He appears to be super relaxed and even has the ability to be aware of his hi-hat stand slipping, and so you can see him pulling it back into place with his left leg, while he is still playing!  I especially like how he integrates his left foot into his comping patterns...(among other amazing things that he's able to play :-) )
