    Default Drummers!

    Which offspring drummer do ya like best and why?

    Mine would have to be Atom Williard because of his great energetic drumming.

    I have to pick Ron, simply because he was the drummer when I listened to to their music just to survive daily life in high school and he had been the drummer on all the albums I listened to up until that point. I had really gotten used to his style and Splinter was a departure from it, though still amazing. Pete is probably better live, he's a very hardcore drummer.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    I can't choose one, each one have his own particular skill that i like.
    Ron it's the king of the ride bell, the way that he played it's so particular and it sound so good.
    Atom hits the snare really hard getting that punk sound that i liked.
    Pete, I think that pete it's very balanced, he have energy and has many empathy he sound very well on the streamings, but i would like to see him live to hear his real quality.
    Josh I've heard the vandals some time ago and i get really impressed about him, even when i knew that he played for the offspring. He is a true punk drummer.

    In synthesis i can't choose one, everyone are great in something.

    In my similar poll from a while back, I think Ron won the plurality. I also voted for him. I mean, the guy pwns those other drumming noobs!
    Quand ils ont dis "Vous vous asseyez," je me suis levé.

    Are you deaf? You call Josh Freese, Pete Parada and Atom Willard drumming noobs? Go clean out your ears and start paying attention!

    They've all got their perks.

    Ron = classic
    Atom = energetic
    Pete = chemistry
    Josh = seriously, why even consider him?

    Though I've always found Atom to be one of my favorite drummers to watch, I'm going to have to go for chemistry. Pete just matches the band, he fits in.

    That is where I stand. They seem to really enjoy playing together and it has really energized their last two tours. I've really noticed a difference myself.

    Edit: I said 'really' a lot in that post. I guess I'm pretty emphatic about it.

    i'm sorry, chances are Pete's going to ditch them just like he did with Saves the Day.
