Joey Jordison, same deal. It doesn't matter what we think, he's Joey Jordison, and that brand is working pretty well for him. Another good example is Psy (Gangnam guy). He is Berklee educated, but they would never advertise that. These are people who understand their target market and have the resources and ability to successfully appeal and sell to that market. No hate from me.

Now, if we're talking strictly in terms of what I regard as good music or difficult music, or what have you, then that's a different story. But nobody stays famous by accident.
Thank you for this post. Really, thank you.
