  101. DDrummr41 says:

    [..YouTube..] But he looks bored as all fucking hell. if I was playing this song, I’d be fucking smiling my ass off and having tons of fun. That’s how drums are supposed to be fucking played. He just looks like he’s taking it too seriously, and not enjoying what he “loves” to do.

    [..YouTube..] If you watch any of the great drummers, they aren’t banging their head, grinning or trying to entertain the audience. They are engrossed with playing.

    Give me substance over style any day.
