The fact that danny carey isn't a showboating moron with a giant kit that makes no sense and plays in his music and not into the eons does it for meastev13":3sly9j03 said:i'm hearing that people actually think that danny carey is a better drummer than mike portnoy ??? are you serious??? and for all the carey fans out there lemme know what songs he made that are "Soooo goooD"
I couldn't agree more, He goes beyond the realm of a "drummer" or "percussionist". If you take the time to disect what he does, that is really listen and pay attention I find he has a real strong influence of not just drummers and technique but the roots of music. Look through the history of man and music and you'll find that Danny Carey derives a lot of style and technique based of some of the most raw, indigenous, and ancestral forms of music.dahlgrendrummer":3q4fcqwg said:Danny Carey does what 3-4 drummers do separately for most bands, and with FEEL,
So many different sounds you can get out of one drum depending on where and how you hit it.BillRayDrums":5b3pijki said:Danny Carey played with Carole King for a while before he was in Tool. To me, that shows the ability to back off & listen to what's going on around you. I don't know too much about Portnoy so I can't say anything negative.
Regarding the comment "(the)only reason he has that many drums and stuff is because he likes to have a huge variety when he plays." There's TONS of variety at your fingertips, even if you are using a tiny little basic kit. Learn to use those variants before thinking that a ginormous drumset is your only creative answer.
