My Vinnie Year - part 4 - PASIC, 1985

Here is what's available of Vinnie Colaiuta's performance at PASIC in 1985, which has since become somewhat legendary, and I was lucky enough to see in person. The quality is poor- plus there is such an abundance of dazzling drum crap available now- so this probably has nothing like the impact it had at the time. But it completely wiped everyone out. This was Star Wars:

After the break, longer audio-only clips, plus another clinic performance from the same period:

Audio only - labeled parts 2 and 3; I don't know what happened to part 1:

Something else from the same period, again with Tim Landers on bass:
