Gone But Still Loved and Truly Amazing
by Michael Rae
I believe that Joey Jordison of Slipknot and Jimmy Sullivan of avenged sevenfold should have a place in this list, because of the amazing input that they have both had on the bands they are and were part of.
Jimmy influenced the style of avenged sevenfold while still being an amazing drummer and keeping his unique style.
Joey is basicly an all round amazing drummer being able to create new and unique drum solos and fills for any song, and being able to play his drums at the same caliber while upside down.
Even if you don't like him you have to admit that takes a lot of skill. Both of these artists have created there own unique style and both have come from basically nothing into greatness with shear skill and talent to bring them into the limelight of music where they truly should be.
