Re: Charlie Benante
Charlie is a good drummer.
However, I don't think he has a "style" that is his.
You listen to Vinnie play, you know it is Vinnie. Same with Ulrich, Adler, Bitner and of course the KING, Dave Lombardo.
Charlie is good, but lacks a difinitive style in my opinion.
Also, I have their live CD and his tempo's fluctuate pretty significantly. Especially on AIR in the beginning with the double bass. The entire song slows down during the initial double bass play. And yes, I checked it with a metronome!
Great technically, but lacks style.
