"It was a really good, action-packed day, and I can grow from the experience."Only 14 years of age at the finals in 2004, Paul was the only player out of all twelve contestants to use a single pedal. Paul’s influence of Gerald Heyward was evident from the start. Mike Dolbear wrote:
"He did no soloing per se, playing only grooves. And man, did they cook! That’s not to say that he didn’t have speed, because when he went round the kit, his doubles and singles were fast! This chap had the right outlook, people were nodding and smiling the whole way through as he shuffled his beats and straightened them out with intensity and heart. In a display of showmanship, Paul even span his sticks during the grooves which made the crowd fall for him instantly."In 2005 Paul Stanley McKenzie was the winning finalist of the Young Drummer of the Year.
