Virgil Donati Quotes
I started to study drums at a very early age as many other drummers, but the difference stands in how hard you work. How much time you spend in exercising and what you put in. You have to have a creative mind. It's very important to have different ideas compared to normal way of thinking. I think that this makes the real difference: new ideas to make and use with your music. I know many drummers who have an incredible technique but don't have original ideas to put on their drums. So as you see it's not only a matter of technique. Musical Ideas!
As you know I spent most of my professional life in Australia. Unfortunately it's a very isolated place and I needed more space to spread my music. Doing this without moving from my original country was impossible, so I decided to move, and the best place to work and play music was the US, a very dynamic place where you can grow if you're good.
