I'll go with the more extreme view and say that Coheed is gay as fuck. I had to mosh to that fucking band to get a good place at Coachella for Faith No More. I saw DEP there too, and I was as far forward as I could be right against the rails, and they killed. Why Chris Pennie would want to drastically decrease the technicality and enjoyability of what he gets to play on stage is a mystery to me.
I enjoy Dillinger and Coheed equally, but the move he made seems strange to me. Dillinger is such a drummer oriented band, you'd think he would love the challenge and attention. Then again, maybe he just wanted to try something new.
