The number of replies on this thread is the proof (5 so far). Should anyone start a thread on Jordison, he'll get some 30 replies pretty quickly (well, maybe not :) ).
PS: Strapping Young Lad is probably my favourite metal band, so I know Gene's work and bio pretty well. I've listened to the Symbolic record by Death as well. Anyone should listen to Alien (by Strapping). Some of the most violent, psychedelic, abstract and complex metal record made. A perfect showcase of Gene's capacities!
Joey and Travis play in commercially successfull RADIO bands so of course they are going to more known to the general poplulous....
Some of the best drummers are relatively unknown to the rest of the world
