    I'm fairly sure Pennie came out of Berklee. And just because you assert one drummer is better doesn't make it so. This is a guy who can actually play the beat from Come To Daddy. But maybe this just...

    Re: Maynard with Rage?

    There are a lot of bands playing longer songs with more technical parts that Tool. Just because you like Tool doesn't make them more talented - how can you even quantify talent?

    That doesn't make sense. Stephen Marley is allowed by GV to do it, but Mute Math definitely won't be allowed to do the same thing?
