Re: Danny Carey
well, Danny is the most outstanding drummer i've heard so far. Seemingly being beneath the music played by his bandmates i often wonder, how he keeps drumming in the middle of it all, building a foundation to the music he's surrounded by.
The new Tool 10.000 days stuff offers , once again, more of his weird kind of drumming, especially in 10.000 days, the second part of wings for marie.
I've read that some people find it much too weird and against the flow of the song, but i feel like they are just not able to feel how perfectly it fits.
It wouldn't be the music it is, if the drumpart was changed.
The question, if Danny flips the snare on and off in a song: he does. Definitely. I've seen him at the Rock am Ring in summer, and there's no question about it. In fact, he's not the only one to do so, look at dream theater's mike portnoy, who has his signature series snare built to this special technique.
I really hope that Danny will be carriying on like this, it's just overwhelming for me to hear him play.
