I've tried practicing and even jamming live that way, but I don't have enough control of the stick. I do like playin traditional grip sometimes, but my left hand is a little further up on the stick. I did start holding the stick in my right hand like him though. It's very comfortable and I can pull off a lot more.

Funny you should say that. Two of my favorite drummers are Carlock and Questlove (see username), but I didn't go with Yamaha because they played Yamaha. I got it because they were the best drums and the best price for the configuration I wanted. Not long after I put my order in for the kit, Keith went to Gretsch and Quest went to Ludwig. All the guys at work were joking, saying I need to cancel my order now. Haha
