What do you think :)? He was a drummer in Manic Subsidal in 1984 so.... I think he plays really good

He doesn't have a snare drum where the snare drum usally is. He has a tom there . I think the snare is to right of the tom.

That is a snare, just a really crappy one with bad heads.

He doesn't drum very good, but he mostly makes up the drumparts for the offspring songs, so. he knows what he wants.

Anyone in a band that long time as Dexter can play the drums for sure, and probably pretty well too.

from what i remember he is just playing striaight 8th note rythym?! (correct me if im wrong!) its not really too hard (although it was quite quick i think)

people have listed in many posts about how many offspring and other bands songs they can play on guitar/bass/drums etc. so it comes down to actually composing music where you start to see people shine over others!

oh man, from what I saw, he's not very good at all. I mean, anyone could've done what he did in the DVD video thing. Simple stuff. And believe me, I'm actually a drummer and I can do WAY better stuff. He's ok for someone who doesn't really KNOw (?) how to play the drums.

If you're refering to my post, I was joking man! I know he ws crap at that point but he was just starting. And I'm a drummer my self and can play wayyyyy better that he did on the vid....

i dunno how good of a drummer dexter is, but he writes all of the drum parts for every song, so he must have at least a little bit of skill.

is that really true?! i know he writes the majority of the bass and guitar parts but as far as i know he doesnt write the drum parts! atom said in an interview that dexter is quite particular about how they sound!
