DA DA DA BRRRDADADADADA
My baby don't care For cars and races
My baby don't care for, he don't care for high-tone places
It would work as a variety show satire
As things stand, my knees are so bad I play as little as possible on the floor anyway - so I'm more of a "handy" than "footy" drummer. Apart from the pain, I don't mind because I don't like a heavy bottom end (which is why I'm dieting haha). The occasional flurry in a fill is cool. First double kick I enjoyed was Michael Giles in ITCOTCK.
As for metal, I've not liked 99% of it for 30 years or so. With modern metal it strikes me that it's almost compulsory for the drummers to run 16ths with a 16ths-based riff. Of course most drummers play pretty standard things most of the time because accompaniment usually doesn't require earth-shattering innovation, but when the standard lines are as dominant as double-kick pedalling it makes the music sound very same-y to my ear.
But I will not wear the label of "single pedal snob". I'm more of a generic snob
