A number of members sharing the same observations and conclusions isn't dog-piling.

And I don't think anyone suggested he's not a true musician. I believe the questions are about the validity and viability of a YouTube Drummer (or any other player) in a world where being a working musician normally requires a studio performance with other musicians.

I raised this question in a thread a while back, and I think the consensus was that YouTube drummers are valid... on YouTube. It's different than real-life, with its own audience, rewards, limitations, and potential for criticism.

As I said in an earlier post, I wouldn't trade YouTube fame for what I've accomplished in the real world with live musicians, playing in front of live audiences.
