I'm not saying anything about Nicko's ability to do "more with less drums", because he's not even a THOUGHT in that category.
But I played drums for a few years (and am still really into the technicality of the instrument), and I've never heard a drummer touch Nicko in terms of single-bass-pedal ability.
