I feel the same way. As odd as it might sound, Gaines has been so good for so many years, IMO, the novelty of his drills is wearing off and other writers (like Weber, for whom I voted) have stepped-up their games with drills that have a fresher look and feel to them. I'm not taking away anything from Gaines -- his drills are incredible, but they are just becoming redundant for me.

Yes. I compared the 2004-2007 drills, and I found a lot of moves that were very similar.

George Zingali was best ever. I wonder who he would be writing for if he had not met such an early death.

"Best Ever":

Although this thread seems to be centered on recent "Field Phenoms", it is great to see the likes of Zingali and Emmons remembered and included. Going back a bit farther we include Mickey Petrone (St Vincents Cadets), who actually INVENTED junior "Drum Corps Drill", the "Franks" Kubinak & Fisher of Blessed Sacrament & St Kevins Emerald Knights, Lenny Picarski (Chicago Cavaliers), and the late great Jim Jones who re-invented drum corps marching with the Casper Troopers.
