Re: Thoughts on Joey Jordison
As a drummer I admit he is good, but I agree live he is very sloppy and yes I believe he uses double bass and speed as a way to compensate for technique. I think most people unfairly hate him due to his over media hype which is far from his fault. I like im in the single factor that he brings in new drummers.
On a personal level I hate him. I met him once at a festival when I was playing in a tent stage, and he was just a really nasty man. Quoting that: "Metal owes nothing to jazz or jazz drummers, you gave us the drum kit, now let us show you how to play it"
Complete and utter nasty piece of work....
