I have his DVD, and he is incredible. The speed of his single pedal playing is shocking. The speed he can play while spinning is impressive too. He has become one of my favorite players. I wish I could see him in session as well.

he's quickly becoming one of my fav's too.  I caught myself standing in GC staring at his video for a while... I need to pick it up as well.

Plus he drums for Prince.. PRINCE!  How cool is that!?  ;D

Yeah, he is REALLY fast. When I was shopping for my e-kit....he is the reason I settled on HartDynamics. They have some promo videos of him playing and I said to myself "self....if these triggers can follow Blackwells playing...they should have no poblem with mine!"  ;D
Seriously though...he is awesome.
