Stewart Copeland shared the feeling of what made him love Joey’s work more than other drummers. He said, “You know, kids these days, they start out where we left off,” Copeland added. “And it’s like the Olympics where every year they can jump a little higher, run a little faster. How’s that possible? Has the human species evolved in one year? I dunno! But Joey Jordison, doing things with his feet that I aspire to with my hands.”
