The choise? really hard...
Well, Ron Welty was played with Offspring 15 years and all that years he`s played really hard and profesional and It`s really dificcult to forget it.
And Atom Have just a couple of months with offspring but he`s energy is really awesome someone can play like this?? i don`t think so.
Conclusion: Atom (the best) Ron (Master).

after ignition i noticed that Ron kinda started using the same old drum rythms for almost every song. it may have been slowed down or sped up, but it sounded exactly the same. Atom changes it up a lot.

I'm not a huge fan of punk drumming generally, so my argument isn't really based around technique. But I think there's something missing from the band now that Ron's gone. He was there from the beginning, he helped take the band to where they are today, and I don't think the band are quite the same without him. I can't ever see myself think of Atom as anything but 'the new guy'.

i'd prefer Ron with the skills and the energy of Atom :)

11-24-2004, 02:13 PM
Yeah... that's why is so difficult to answer that question... Offspring started with Dexter, Greg, Noedles and Ron too, and Ron helped take the band to where they are today.... On the other hand Atom is an excellent drummer and he has more energy than Ron... I can't answer to my question :D , this is the reason that I need help

how can you say that after ignition the drumming got very samey...you obviously havent listened to the offsprings best album IXNAY in which the drumming is fuck'n superb...and that the drums on splinter are infact mostly the same beat played over and hell knows why when josh freese is one of the best drummers in the world and could have been used in a more influential way

Without any bias Atom is a far better drummer that Ron but of course everyone likes Ron well because he's the original. It's like New Coke and Classic Coke, I personally enjoyed New Coke better but most people prefer the taste of classic just because it was there first.

Well....I've seen them both live and I can say they both rock.It's something that I really cannot answer.

Obviously Atom is an awesome drummer, but for some reason, I would have prefered Ron to stay...

in the old days i would have said ron but man he ditched the band, i hate him so atom all the way

Ron's best work was on Ignition, if he'd been drumming like that throughout his whole career then I would've probably said him. Atom hasn't recorded anything with the band yet I know, but I've heard the shit he did with Rocket From The Crypt and he's fucking amazing! Not to mention seeing him live in concert, and just look at the Can't Repeat videos - he looks so natural doing it!

Atom's better.

Josh Freese played on Splinter too.

don't be a blind fanboy. Atom and Josh Freese are both better. Ron was great on ignition, but his later stuff is boring. Did you see atom doing the long way home on the dvd? That is energy!

fuck the energy! :cool:
Josh made drums the same way as Ron did!!
& it will be the same with Atom!
IMO,its because of they are maistream band and because of producers....& maybe Dexter!

Ron's drums <3

Well, I really like Atom much more than Ron...

If you could see, Ron seemed kinda bored from the beginning, he just did play to get seen but he didn't put the energy that Atom can put, I mean, Atom looks very happy playing in The Offspring; just look at the Can't Repeat video, Atom is always smiling, whereas you never could see Ron doing this... Atom really enjoys to play. That's why HE FUCK'N ROCKS!!!!


ATOM FOREVER!!!! OFFSPRING FOREVER!!!

Ron looked cool and stayed silent. He was so solid.

Atom just likes to ham it up on stage.

They both had great energy and played the beats.


And of course Atom is seen smiling! You would too if you were invited into one of the worlds biggest bands knowing you'll be set for life and probably be a millionaire in a year or two?
