Poll Results: Who could replace Danny?

Last weeks poll was a litle controversial, in that several people couldn’t stomach the though of having anyone else other than Danny drumming to Tool. I’m somewhat in the same boat in that I believe he couldn’t be replaced, but these polls are about “what if” type situations, so I ask for your opinion on who could replace him, not whether or not he could be replaced.

Personally, I’m a little surprised that for once the pick I made finished last. Personally I think Igor Cavalera is one of the best drummers around, and I reckon he’d do a great job with Tool. Tim Alexander would probably be my second choice. Out of all the drummer their I think that he would cope best with the various time changes.

It looks like Josh Freese was the overall winner. I think he’s a great drummer, but I don’t really think he would be suitable.

A couple of other suggestions were Dave Grohl and Virgil Donati. Another couple of good choices, though Dave would probably struggle with some of the more complex stuff. Either way we’re debating something here that will most likely never happen. I think all drummers here a good in their own way, and would add an aspect different aspect to Tool.

  1. Josh Freese 139 Votes

Oh, and for those of you who didn’t get the joke, Roland is the drummer from Big Black, who was in fact a Drum Machine.
