Petcu Colan’s Rising Star performance was memorable no less for the breadth of technique than for the comparable range of emotion, expression and mood.

With overlapping rhythms, this drum solo becomes more and more frenetic as it progresses and has Crash's ambidextrous Alex Petcu no less frenzied.
