“Led a Musical Revolution”

Grant Collins, the virtuoso drummer, led a musical revolution. His “multi-timbral soundscapes” shattered any preconceived notions about the artistic capacity of drumming. His compositions were complex and surprisingly narrative. But how can drumming be narrative? I guess it was a had-to-be-there experience!
