In 2006, he was honored by being named “#2 Best All-Around Drummer” in Modern Drummer’s Readers Poll, finishing second to the legendary Vinnie Colaiuta. 2007′s poll results tagged Keith as “#2 Best Pop Drummer” and #3 Best All-Around Drummer (following only to Steve Gadd and Vinnie Colaiuta.) In 2008, Keith was honored with winning the “Pop” category and being voted 3rd “Best All-Around” in Modern Drummer’s Readers Poll.
