Re: Abe Cunningham
Abe Cunningham is my hero. He is absolutely amazing. Every song on every Deftones album has excellent drumming.
He plays softer and more expressive things like on Digital Bath where he plays a trippy, intricate groove (Listen during the verse, as far as i can hear, its completely one handed. Also the chorus sounds one handed minus the flams)
And then as far as heavy goes, the chorus to Minus Blindfold is as heavy as it gets. I like that he doesnt resort to just laying double bass over the entire thing and call it "heavy". If more metal drummers were as creative as Abe Cunningham, we'd have less crappy metal.
Not to mention that he plays like a freaking BEAST.
