Yes, I think Joey is a great drummer as well. Good speed and power. But let's be a little realistic, he is not THE best metal drummer around. I could name several metal drummers that have more speed, better chops, power and showmanship.

Not trying to take anything away from Joey, but I think there are a lot pf people that kind of blindly worship him as the best when he really isn't. There really are many drummers out there that would smoke him in every catagory.
