But I'm surprised to see a pro drummer expressing such a "mean" comment about another pro drummer, without any more justifications. I mean, you can like or dislike Portnoy's style, that's ok. But he is among the most influential rock drummers of the last decade. There's gotta be something more about his drumming to comment on after seeing him than ... his shoes.
