To the OP - if the rest of the band has the song down, and if YOU have the song down except for the opening drum fill, I would do the song. If the fill makes you nervous, leave it out or play an alternate. You and maybe two other people will notice. Be sure to let your bandmates know you're going to do that, though. If they think you forgot a part or screwed up, it could throw them off!
