Default Re: My new DRUM! article

Thumbs up Bermuda, good article!

I usually consider the "I play it my way" drummer or musician as someone too lazy to learn a style. They've got their lick, and that's their lick, and it's what you're gonna get on every song.
If a player isn't interested in learning different styles, challenging grooves and new vocabulary, why are they there? I just don't get it. Besides, if I get an occasional compliment on a gig, it's probably because I captured the original artist's style. I recall a recent compliment along the lines of "you played Suit & Tie better than our usual drummer", and I thought hey it's just what they did on the record. What the heck is the other guy playing?
