Who do you think is better? They play different styles but both are very progressive players who have tons of technique.
I'm a Rose fan but have a easier time learning Portnoy's techniques. I'm not saying Portnoy is easier by any means it's just Rose has really odd kick drum placement with busy patterns.TamaSwngstr121":2yn92nvl said:I dont believe in better, because they are different and no one drums exactly the same, therefore i think no one can be 'better'. But im a big Portnoy fan.
Morgan Rose is my biggest influence as a Metal player. I dig his sound and crazy technique! People are constantly saying i sound like a crazy Hybrid of Him and Jason Bowld from Pitchshifter (i play a lot of drum n bass and jungle beats with my band, as well as hardcore sevendust style grooves) Portonoy is really tallented no doubts, but he's too much like thomas lang for my liking.. shows off too much and has way too many drums.Rooster":2je64te5 said:
His name is Martin Lopez and I completely agree. Although he might not have as many tricks up his sleeve as Portnoy or Rose, his drumming has a bit of cultural influence about it. However, he can't play relaxing music for shit - if you listen to their mellow record, "Damnation," he plays the same beat throughout the entire cd.Howepirate":2jelclw4 said:
