Slipknot isn't about the individual talent. They use all of the members of their band because they want that sound. The atmosphere at their shows is crazy, and he doesn't use the two other percussionists (Chris and Shaun) in every song. Very often they are there just to accent his double bass grooves.___madworld said:dont you think that he would be a lot better without the other two "percussionists" in slipknot?
So what you are saying is he doesn't deserve the lavish praise he gets for being a gimmicky drummer in a gimmicky band? Oh wait, no , sorry, that's what I'm saying.medeskisoul said:I hope this Joey Thread isn't going to end up like the other one on the last forum.
My two cents:
I like Joey. Super nice guy and he does have chops, just not the most in the world. He isn't the greatest, but he isn't the worst. Bottom line; he gets the job done. he works for Slipnot.
