Joey Jordison vs Billy Cobham
Slipknot's masked sticksman, music obsessive and multi-instrumentalist constantly tops polls as one of the world's finest exponents of modern metal drumming. Voted Greatest Drummer of the Last 25 Years by Rhythm readers in 2010, will Joey do the business this time?
Pioneering jazz/rock fusion drummer whose work with Miles Davis and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, plus his own Spectrum album, has been massively influential. Billy influenced rock drummers as much as jazz drummers, extending the kit with double kicks and multiple toms, and was a pioneer in the use of electronic percussion and triggering.
Totally different drummers, and we're not saying one's better than the other. What we're asking is: which one is the greatest in your opinion?
