Re: The Reverend
My opinion is that the rev is a really great drummer, indeed his snare sucks but he plays so fantastic... yeah maybe he doesn't put nuances like a jazz player but damn, he's a Metal drummer. I don't really like his setup neither, but its more like Iron Maiden's drummer, and it's their biggest influence
And do anyone here listened to him live ? I got twice, and HELL YEAH he reproduce all his tracks like a god ! I mean, there's no lack in his live play, he plays the same way as in studio. The only song that I wanted to hear from them and that they didn't play both time I saw them live, is sidewinder.
BTW, his name is James Sullivan
