Atom puts a lot more energy in the shows, It`s way better to see him drumming than Welty

I like Atom. He hits his toms like if they were some bad bad guy, but Ron was a cool guy. I prefer Ron because he was one of the 4 engines who made Offspring as we know 'em know. Would you say you prefer Kirk Hammet if he would take Noodles' place? :D

Even though Atom obviously is the better drummer, I still like Ron better. He's just a part of the offspring and fits better than Atom.

Definitely Atom. I never payed attention on the drummers, but Atom is so cool, it's fun to watch him

Atom is much cooler than Ron i mean his name alone is cooler!
Also he is a lot entertaining. I reckon that Atom might be a little bit better than Ron in drumming skills

Bonjour madame/miseur (however this is spelled)
Ca va? Ca va bien. C'est nul!

Atom doesn't play on splinter, it's the guy in the vandals and a perfect circle.

I'm gonna say the same thing here that I've said in all of the other 100 threads of this same thing: You can't say anything about other being better than the other!!!! Because Atom hasn't played on any album or track!!!! We gotta wait for him to play on atleast on and maybe even on a whole album before you can compare them!!!! And one thing is that Ron was under Dexter's shoe(or so I've heard)for how to play!! Let's see if Atom can drum how he want's all the way....

the album drumming doesn't matter, because the drumming is almost always edited and overproduced to sound just like it should on the album. Atom beats the fuck out of Ron when it comes to drumming live.

Josh Freese plays drums on Splinter. And I like more Welty. Willard gives the energy to the shows but its not important. Important is to have harmony between drums, guitars, bass and vocals and Welty is better in this. Even better than Freese. And Welty is very fast drummer!

its one fine day

speed isn't everything. in fact it's not much at all. they're a good drummer if they can groove, such as steve gadd or benny greb.

example;

Steve Gadd In Switzerland (http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/stevegaddthingsmov.mov)

Benny Greb At The Hamburg Music Academy (http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/bennygrebhamburg.mov)

Ron Welty is THE best. i think the Offspring was soooooooo much cooler when they had the long hair and shit, and sung about people with major mental disorders, so thats when Ron was playin' and that's where my loyalty stays. even though Atom is cool and a good drummer and i'm glad when Ron left that they replaced him with someone decent. (as if they wouldn't anyway). ps. Dexter would be the best drummer even if he can't play. lol

josh freese was the splinter drummer....atom is better live, more energy and actually looks like he wants to be there....not like ron :( ..atom is more :D ....however atom hasnt recorded any albums.....so i guess time will tell
