Did Dexter write the drum parts after Ron left the band?
I remember reading somewhere that Dexter writes the parts for every instrument. So does that mean that on the records released after Ron left (from Splinter-present), Dexter wrote all those drum parts? The drumming from Splinter on is noticeably more aggressive, intense and seemed a little more modern sounding. If Dexter wrote these parts, I'd have to give him a lot of songwriting props for successfully updating the sound of the drums in the band. I'd say it was a needed improvement, as the drum style was pretty average and typical stuff for the most part when Ron was still in the band.
When they said "sit down", I stood up.
