Re: Gene Hoglan
I love Gene's playing with Death and SYL, but I went to see that cartoon band he plays with, and was completely underwhelmed. He looked like he wanted to be anywhere but there, and his playing was devoid of any kind of energy. Maybe my expectations were too high, but man... He set the bar really low. Of course, he was playing cartoon metal music, with the cartoon playing on a big screen above the band, so maybe he thought he just needed to "get by" since all the punters were watching the images on the screen.
