I am yet to see an add for a drummer that includes "Must have at least 20 years experience, or you wont be any good". Not in my neck of the woods anyway and If someone did I would avoid the numpties like the proverbial.
I disagree with just about everything you say here. But that's cool. That's what it's all about! It's good to have different views.
