Re: I'm just a "feel" drummer so I don't need technique, right?
I suppose it depends on how happy you are with your own playing.
I'll never be happy so, I'll always be practisong my technique and searching for new ones.
I think the aim is to achieve the feel and sound you want with the least possible effort and that's what technique is about, finding harmony between body/ mechanics and sticks/feet.
I like my drum sound fat and simple. Just like me.
