Yep - Vinnie is the man.
I used to go listen to him play once a month or so at a little club in North Hollywood with a group that featured Michael Landau on guitar, Greg Mathieson on keys, and Abraham Laboriel Sr. (the father of the guy who's playing drums with McCartney) on bass. Talk about an ass whoopin!'
Another total drum mutant I forgot to add to my list is Terry Bozzio. Dude's scary!
