Joey Jordison is a famous musician who started become well known for his drumming with the increasing popularity of his primary band "Slipknot". He is primarily known for his drumming talents in the band "Slipknot" and being the guitarist and backing vocals for the band "Murderdolls".
Although everyone calls him over rated and not a good drummer, this is very untrue. He is not the best drummer in the world, but he is one of the best. His drumming style is comprised of many different original and unique techniques. He is most well noted for his use of 2's and 4's over bassdrum triplets that he uses in a lot to most of the bands songs. As well, he incorporates many other drumming techniques and does not only focus on one certain kind.
Jordison is often criticized by metal fans that listen to death metal and feel that if you don't use blast beats in every song you must not be a good drummer. Some of these drummers could be George Kollias, Derek Roddy, or any other death metal drummer.
To sum it up, Jordison is a very popular and GOOD drummer that is often criticized by people who know less about drumming that think speed is the only thing that matters in drumming. And although he is not the best, he is an extremely good well rounded drummer.
