I like the drummer but can’t stand the band

There’s a video (Drumeo, I think) where Gregg Bisonette (sp?) says he’ll play and record just about anything (and he has the chops and versatility for it) but isn’t into the Cookie Monster screaming vocals in death metal. That’s a pretty good description IMO.
Cookie monster goes back a bit, I remember a thrash band I knew 40 years ago using that term along with Captain Crunch.

I think the real issue with many of these is IHeartMedia/ClearChannel overplaying the living hell out of a handful of songs from a handful of bands.

I don't hate AC/DC and like the drums. If I hear one of the same 5 singles on the radio I'm going to pull my teeth out. Non-facetiously I will take any Jonas Brothers song over Back in Black just because my brain doesn't have PTSD from just hearing the guitar.
G&R, Toto, Styx, Hendrix, RHCP, Stones, Beatles are all one in the same when we have media hammering the same few songs from bands that have made more than 5.
Classic Rock radio never expanded. Alternative Rock radio can't get past Santeria, My Own Worst Enemy, Time of Your life,Whatever Everclear's single was and the 20 other songs that live on repeat on Sirius or Mainstream rock radio.
That's one reason why I haven't listened to the radio in about 30-40 years.

I always guessed Chuck Schuldiner was the original heavy metal cookie monster. Any earlier ones of interest?

That's a big hole to jump down. Schuldiner is a good option. Possessed I think had the first claimed "Death Metal" Album (Seven Churches?) which predated Death's release by a couple years. Going down deep old memories here, but those two seem to be the argument I remember.

A poor one will be replaced by the end of the first album or tour for sure. Drummers at that level are just good. Period.
….. then there are those that are good but were dismissed because of continued drug use or other issues that affected the band’s progress .

I don't like much Chicago that was made after Terry Kath died but I like Danny Serephine (sp?)

It took me a while to come up with one: Tool. I really like Danny’s playing and can appreciate what it takes for the entire band to record/perform but the music never really grabbed me.

I went (somewhat reluctantly) a few years back to see them live and it was quite a bland concert.

I’m not a fan of the Chili Peppers at all but love Chad Smith and his playing, especially in Chickenfoot. Wish they’d do another album.
I feel the same way about Chad , he plays really well with Glenn Hughes …

Yup same here, I thought Mike Bordin (sp?) was great, and I think he played open handed. Never was a fan of FNM though I loved their cover of “Easy like Sunday Morn’”

I'm the other way on that issue. E? Pretty much 90% of the band. L? Well, at least his voice was a big part of the sound. P? Good drummer but he could have easily been replaced.
Disagree. E and L did an album with Cozy Powell, which was pretty good but didn’t have the Palmer touch, which was very unique. With Cozy, who I loved in Rainbow, it was not the same and IMHO not as good. Good, just not as great as with Carl.
