Not that fanciness makes the drummer, but I think Kevin is happy to have someone who has more grooves in his repertoire.
    I have not done any sort of in-depth analysis, and there are few drummers who have ever really taken my breath away with their skills (Alan Wren being the last) - but I do recall Jamey being fluent enough to drive the drums along without raising any questions as to his ability. That being said, the last OM show I witnessed was on the Hissing Fauna tour, so anything forward that was limited to Youtube clips (which I never enjoy). Still or lessover, not a single big drum moment comes to mind when I think about the last few records. It's all very tertiary to lyrics, melodies and schizo tempo changes.

    But as you said "James Husband was damn good live."

    Jamey's a hell of a musician/performer, and I love his music, but Clayton is in a whole different league when it comes to drums. I actually do think there are some big drum moments on the last few records, and the overall variety of what Clayton is capable of really drives a lot of the music in ways theretofore impossible. Not to mention most of the drums on the albums leading up to Clayton's arrival were programmed.

    He left because of the pollution of his imbecile rages
