In rock music, there needs to be points in the songs where the drummer connects with the audience through signature fills . . .
I went to see Styx last night. If you listen to the the intro to the pre-chorus of Come Sail Away and the last verse of Lady, you will see what I mean. People were air drumming:
Come Sail Away 2:26 or 4:30
Lady esp 3:01 (One of the earliest, if not the first power ballad.)
totally Old School . . . that's why people still love classic rock . .
or how about this . . .
