Untrue IMO, some of the most popular live acts in the world, Twenty one Pilots, Kendrick Lamar, The Chainsmokers, Post Malone, all have live drummers. Josh Dun, the drummer for Twenty one Pilots has inspired my drumming to places I never thought it would take me.Maybe it’s the shift in popularity to genres that don’t rely on instruments and live performances?
Of course electronics in music is the future whether you like it or not, drums and technology in percussion have to and will adapt to the times, but will drummers? That's up to us, we're all here to play and promote our passion which is drumming.
From personal experience most of the older folk and every venue ever tend to stay stubborn to the old times rather than adapt to the new.
This is why young bands and musicians get discouraged, because people only want covers from 40 years ago.
