I don't think he's underated at all. Anyone who knows about drumming knows Kelly is the best all around drummer/teacher in the area. He cares about his students, brings in TONS of talent to help motivate his students, unlike other teachers who just want to push students through instructional books.

Yeah, Kelly likes to talk, but he's a nice guy. He'll also tell you liek it is. He's not the guy who will tell your kid he's great when he stinks. He'll come out and tell your kid, " You sounded like crap today !" Hopefully that'll kick your kid in the but and make him practice more so he wont have to hear it the following week.

How many other instructors have brought in other drum teachers to teach and/or play with students ? Not many.

He's brought in:

Jim Chapin- World renown instructor
Dom Famolaro- Voted top instructor Modern Drummer
Kenny Aranoff- Former John Mellencamp, now
Fogerty's drummer
Mark Shulman- Ex-foreinger, Now PINK's drummer
Liberty Devitto-Billy Joels ex (and best drummer)
Leroy Clouden- Steely Dan, B-52's
Clyde Stubblefield & Jabo Starks- James Brown
among others... And the list continues to grow...

Other instructors just muddle through their lives and don't try to motivate kids to become better players, Kelly does, that's what sets him above the rest.

Oh, and as far as knowing HOW to play, Kelly can lay down like no one's business.

Hands down it's Steve Lazarek of Keel the puppet. The guy can play anything and the band puts on a great show. If you ain't seen him yet, you gotta!

Anyone remember Tim Gilles? He was an amazing drummer, although I heard he went off the deep end a few years ago.
