Adler was a bash, bash, bash man, no imagination (listen to AFD, makes me cringe awful drumming), Sorum likes to mix it up


each to there own i guess. AFD is an amazing rock album i think - and record sales prove it - the album stills sells by the bucket load every year...and IMHO i like the drumming on it. sure it's easy. real easy. but it fits the song. well. really well - yeah i know you could play it with one hand if needs be...but i still like it. Matt - yeah sure he's a 'better' player - but his drum sound isn't for soul...and his drums lines always struck me as average - he didn't try anything orginal (IMO!!). but hey...

i guess it don't really matter - sorum is good. but i missed simple steve.
