Can anyone tell me why Mike Bordin does not have his own profile on drummerworld. He's a highly recognised drummer and pioneer of the open handed drumming technique i think its time drummerworld gave him it's nod. Any supporters??

I wouldn't call him a "pioneer" of the open handed drumming technique, he's no where near the 1st guy to use it.

But he is a great drummer who has nice long resume of work.

I grew up in San Francisco, and he used to come in where I worked before Faith No More got big. So when I saw Faith No More open for Metallica in 89, it was "hey, there is that guy!".

Years later, I went to see Metallica again, and Korn was on the bill, and he was filling in.

But in terms of main stream open handed players id view him as pioneer and being an open handed player myself he was infact the first pplayer i saw who played that way. of course i soon learned that there were and still alot more accomplished open handed players than bordin. But he's one of top men

Add him to the wish list and in due time Bernhard will decide who or whom makes it to the main page.
