So, why are Nicko, Janick and Dave going out first if they are (also) judged by performance then? The answer is simple: because their performance is not judged. People just don't give a damn about that. People are in awe of Bruce, Steve and Adrian. And they overlook the importance and quality of the other three. It doesn't matter f*ck if Dave writes an interesting song on the latest record, it doesn't matter what Janick does, because he's Janick (doesn't matter that he was co-responsible for the title track and highlight of the new tour). And Nicko? Ah, Nicko is a drummer. Case closed.To judge any band member we have to judge them by their current output and performance.
