I mean hey, why knock them? Should there be 3 drumkits in Slipknot?? :P
Yep, Shaun was the drummer before Joey joined.
I like Slipknot, but im not too keen on Joey's drumming, i really like what Shaun and Chris add though, you can hear them if you know what to listen out for.
Plus their sound and genre asks for speed I think, and Joey offers that,
But yea his solo does kind abore me a bit.
