As far as I know this person doesn't actually exist, so let's all hate him and with our single outcast to focus our frustration on the rest of us will become a much more tight group than we already are.

this thread is the only thing that sucks here. there are plenty of people who do this for different reasons. money,fame,fortune,love of doing it. who are any of you to judge?anyone who plays has my respect. and for the record lars has the rock backbeat from hell and "the rev" even though i don't care for their music was transcribing the black page from frank zappa when he was 16. i couldn't do that now. i think someone said it best early in this thread. the only drummers that suck are the ones who bash other drummers.
i want what all men want. i just want it more.

I have no particular opinion on that guys drumming. I am in a band that was on ozzfest this summer and my big thing with avenged 7 was that they played their set to a pre recorded tape. Therefore totally "rigging" their live sound. Sure it's hard to have the most awesome show every single night, but if you can't pull it off better live(I mean with more energy) than on a record then I think you are cheating the audience. Although no one there seemed to care, they just wanted to party and have fun and probably aren't analyzing it the way that I was. Overall that band was extremely boring to watch and technically did not even need to be there since there was a pre recorded tape playing. But I will say that there was plenty of people there that hated us too, so who am I to talk.

Travis barker or tommy lee-they are two of the most overated drummers ive ever heard of-theve never done anything that puts them at the level there at.
For me though,The Rev is good-just cocky and looks way to queer to be in a band like that-there style has dropped to straight edge-thats not good.
I dont like this thread though-so sorry if someone dissagrees with me.

DUDE!!!!I saw some video footage of them and I could've SWORE it was pre-recorded....Now I know. Not that Im much on A7X anyway. As for the "Black Page" story.....don't believe everything someone says in MD or DRUM! magazine. Sometimes people say things to impress all the drumfreaks out there, but just because he said it doesn't mean it's true...I mean, ask Travis Smith if he played on Trivium's first album......He may just tell you a lie. But all this doesn't mean that either of them suck.....And for the record, I didn't pay to see Rikki Rocket and Poison, I got in free. BUT WHO'S GONNA TURN DOWN FREE POISON / KISS TICKETS? LOL!

I would have to disagree about travis barker, he's much more technically sound that people give him credit for. He's proven he can be play different styles with the many different bands he performs with, from blink to boxcar to transplants to plus 44. I'm not a big fan of these bands or this music, but I respect his ability. Check him out on this snare-solo video from his days with blink.

Join the club. :D

This forum seems to me to be very positive. Some drumming forums seem full of bad attitude. This thread has so many people saying not to bash drummers. AWESOME!

I love all drummers. The fact that they play drums at all means so much.
I don't know what I'm talking about!

actually for the most part there's been good discussion in this thread, only the title gives it that negative slant.

The only drummers I would say suck has nothing to do with their playing level, but their personality. For instance, there is a drummer in a local band around here that isn't good at all (in my humble opinion) but spends all his time bashing other bands and talking bad about other drummers. He is a drummer who sucks lol.

As for The Rev, I love him. His drumming has inspired me very much, and I've come up with many many creative fills of my own thanks to listening to him. But, that's just my opinion, everyone has all different opinions and that's what makes the world go round. I respect everyone's opinion.

As far as people being in it for money, I have a feeling most figure out pretty quick that drumming and being a musician in general is not a good way to get rich quick lol.

Wow, everytime I see these threads, I always see "Lars Ulrich sucks"
The quote that they wished Lars had died in the bus crash rather than Cliff is childish at best. Remember, Lars is the CO-FOUNDER of Metallica (James is the other).
And yes, Lars' drumming did seem to go downhill when Bob Cock..err Rock started producing albums (his resume included Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith..how he got into Metallica is beyond me, but the effects are painfully obvious). The Black Album was ok..but pailed in comparison with MOP and AJFA (Met's best albums)..less metal, more of an "arena rock" feel.
Then there was the downsizing of his kits, the cutting of hair, and the removal of EVERYTHING Metallica for the recording of Load.
Lars had a lot to do with the production and writing of songs before Bob came in (which is why all the 80's stuff is gold), after bob, lars lost some of his power, thus Black, Load, Reload, St Anger..all shitty albums compared to the 80's.
And, btw, St Anger sounds the way it does because they were all pissed off...not an excuse for the turd bomb, but a reason. I will say that I have heard demo tapes that sound better (LOL).
Napster was sued because the song "I dissapear" got on there before they were finished editing it, and with all the other crap going on, the frustration was high. Lars has said that if he could do it all over again, he would have done it different. But sueing Napster was their right..and as owners of the copywrited material, they should have.
And to exMet fans that left the band after the napter deal, you were the guilty ones involed, and obviously not real met fan's, cause all of us "real" fans have stayed with the band..those that left, shame on you.
