The rest of the band pranked him once by recording a drum machine on its highest setting and telling him it was a drummer that could play faster than him.

He ended up playing faster than the machine.

lobones,
Did you make this list in a hurry? Because there's no way on this planet that Rockenfield is more skilled than Lombardo, who's shocking nowhere to be found on this list...

Lombardo's drumming was a CRUCIAL part of Slayer, it was actually more than likely the heart and soul of their entire sound.
By contrast, being a ginormous Queensryche fan, I can say that Rockenfield's drumming is not important to the band's sound and is not really notable or exceptional in any way.
He's a damn good player, but come on...

To add to the case for Lombardo, his stuff with Fantomas is highly experimental and much more difficult than the stuff he does with Slayer.
