Re: Jon Dolmayan
I remember in the time soon after I got my drumkit that I was playing along to the album Toxicity, and geez, are those songs hard to play. No complex polyrhythms, no blazing speed, no ten-minute-epics but I still struggle with getting those songs spot on, seriously amazing drummer, just without the "amazing" image attached to other drummers. The energy of the drumming in SOAD music is just so much, I realised it when I tried to play along to something like Revenga or Forest.
...and Question...with all of those time signature changes...geez, very unlike the rest of his drumming with SOAD...anyone who can pull that off deserves to be commended.
