Good feeling time. Not just metronomic time.

How to practice.

Enough facility/technique to express yourself in the music you want to play.

The ability to show up on time, in the right shoes, with your parts learned and appropriate gear in tow.

Great hair.

Big ears.
big ears is one of my all time favorite sayings

while studying with Joe Porcaro every time I entered and exited the room Joe would yell....BIG EARS!!!!.....while holding his hands to the sides of his head

he was a firm believer in the notion that if you had "big ears" the music would tell you exactly what to play

I too am a believer in this
