Re: Joey Jordison
I don't see how any of the DW jazz drumming clips are any more egocentric drumming for the drummer, any more than any of the metal drummers are drumming for the drummer.
Same thing (showing off chops and tricks and musicality) but for different genres.
The problem with the logic that jazz players are only playing for themselves just shows the lack of understanding of jazz in general. What sounds like 5 random guys playing random notes is in fact all carefully orchestrated (and improvised) complex music that not everyone understands.
