5 Times Vinnie Colaiuta Left Us SPEECHLESS!

Happy Birthday, Vinnie Colaiuta!

We celebrate the master Vinnie Colaiuta. The man who graced the drum throne for the likes of Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Sting and countless others. Vinnie can do it all – with discography ranging from Chick Korea and Toto to Lyanne Rhymes and Lindsay Lohan.

We check out 5 times that Vinnie left us utterly speechless!

Two things stand out from this video:


Legend has it that Vinnie has a practice pad in every room so he can practice all the time. If he does, it certainly paid off BIG TIME. Maybe if we all practice hard enough, we’ll all be able to play Seven Days like him.
