Mathematiclly, he is correct that slower speeds are "harder" because they have a larger possiblity of error. Lets call the time between each hit of the beater as x at 16th notes as 200bpm. At then 8th notes at 200bpm, which is half the speed of 16th notes at 200bpm, the time between each hit of the beater is 2x. 2x>x, so it is easier to hear when a drummer screws up at slower speeds. I said "harder" with quotations because it isnt exactly harder to play slower, just easier to know when a play screws up at slow speeds. It takes years to master double kicks at high speeds and to play them cleanly.
