Re: Everything about these 3 bands.
I hate you :| I wanted to fly out to NYC to see them on February 19th but probably can't.
I agree, as far as drumming goes, these three bands are not the epitome of drumming chops. Chad Szeliga is pretty good, though.
One goes to see these bands because they rock as a group and have some pretty awesome songs, not so much because they expect a Slash or Joey to pop out and say "hey, look at me, I'm the most awesomest musician here".
Now, for counter-jealousy: I get to see Theory of a Deadman, Adelita's Way and... Halestorm live in Seattle in a month :3
