well said.... I have respect for both Portnoy and Carey and this should not be a discussion on who is better. Both have contributed to their bands respectfully. Having said that, personally, I have been absolutely blown away with Danny Carey's drumming for the past 15 years or so. His understanding of musical theory and the placement of notes have paved the way for drummers of the future to carve their own niche on music.Brazilian Drummer":1otfkv9h said:I agree with scream kevim, there is no shuch thing as best...
but as far as "overall" unles we saw each guy take a shot at all diferent styles of music, tham maybe we could say something.
I'm a big DT fan and have seen Mike play live, he is one of my fav. drummers, alongside with Carter Beauford and Joao Barone and I have seen them all live, and mikes energy on stage is awsome, he is such a good performer, you got to give it up to those guys that go out day after day performing their hearts out everytime. hopefuly I'll be able to do that someday.
those 2 are awsome drumes pornoy is my favorit out of the 2, but I cant say wich is better them the other
