Rise of the Humanoids!!
Are we becoming extinct? Are we becoming a dying breed? Certainly the age of digital drum tracks and sequencers has made the job of a studio drummer a thing of the past.
Now Humanoids are just now coming out (of Japan) that can walk, dance, kick, get knocked down and get back up on their own. How long will it be before we tell the next young kid that wants to be a drummer, a "beginner", that "not to waiste your time, we have humanoids now that can do that. You just stick in your favorite song and artist and let them do the work"?
10 yrs I say.
(Imagine the possibility of a humanoid being able to play the same song, but with the nuances of any specific drummer, eg Jack DeJohnette vs Dave Weckl??)
