Re: Thoughts on Joey Jordison
I'm a slipknot fan, and to me Joey gets the job done. Most of the stuff slipknot plays live is up to speed or faster, and Joey is able to accomplish that while putting on a great show. The guy is a better performer than anything else really, and for a touring musician that's key. Now, granted straight 16th double bass and toms are easy, try windmillng or head banging at those speeds while still playing clean.
I think Joey is just right for slipknot, and I think he's a solid drummer with great performing skills. By no means the best or fastest or most showy, but he definitely has his own unique style which is just right for what he does.
