Yes, but that doesn't exactly make you a fantastic drummer. I can keep good time. Stu can keep good time. The difference between us and actual fantastic drummers - like, say, Gavin Harrison or Billy Ward just to pick two who hang around here - is that they do things above and beyond just keeping good time. They manage to do things which are actually creative and interesting, which I really didn't see any of in that video. All I saw was poor technique and stereotypical metal drumming without any spice or pizazz.
