Billy Rymer is actually playing beats and rhythms. Portnoy just seems to be performing throwaway drum solos.
Billy's drum solo had a few cool parts, Portnoy's performance was a disappointment - too bad he started "playing along" with Billy in his second solo. The coolest thing of this video was to see how limited two well-respected drummers are when playing solo on a "regular" drumkit. Makes me feel good about my own drumming skills.
Mike Portnoy is by far the best drummer in the world, all you people who voted for Billy Rymer are retarded
You don't hand the Cup to Brodeur just because he was once the best goalie in the world.
Billy Rhymer destroys Portnoy. Anyone who thinks otherwise is in denial... in addition to being a total gay.
only room for one nerd to win a lifetime subscription to modern drummer mag. portnoy is looking like dimebag, except people care about dimebag
the difference between progressive rock and progressive metal
Portnoy is talented, but boring. Rymer is actually memorable. Why did Portnoy start playing along at the end? He was making it too busy (though I liked the double bass at that one point).
My parents pugs could do a better job on the kit than Mike Portnoy. Anyone who thinks Mike Portnoy is a good drummer is a literal TURD.
So visibly awkward for Portnoy. Dude got smoked.
billy rymer vs lars ulrich . comedy central special.
agreed on Schalk Portnoy is the most supreme of overhyped hacks.
Rymer was playing an old Dream Theater track. Thats why Portnoy started playing along. Cool to pay homage to a great old school drummer. Rymer def stands out in the evolution of musicianship. Portnoy must have felt old after this.
if any of you truly think this kid is better than portnoy, you know nothing about the drumset and music...he can play no doubt, but he is not a better drummer than mike portnoy. this is a fact.
Thinking that portnoy is better after watching that makes you a dipshit..kill yourself
obviously not watching this, but dep's drummer is called "Billy Rymer" now. where the fck is the real drummer?
Phil Rudd would kill all these fools. Wait...
