He did a solo, talked about his inspirations, played a few tunes, as well as his snare drum solo from his high school state drum competition. Carl Palmer was funny as all heck and very comfortable (I seem to remember him doing this 15 years ago on Channel 13's/PBS' Rock School with Herbie Hancock). Played his arse off...the guy's freakin' fast and as precise as heck. All-in-all, pretty great to be 15 feet away from these guys.
....I was 15 feet away Jim Carey one time but there was that huge stage, and numerous security guards in between us. Must've been a cool experience and I almost envy you.
