I've seen Eric Clapton with three virtuoso drummers: Phil Collins, Steve Ferrone, and Steve Gadd. They all brought their individual style to the gig. I'm sure that Eric didn't tell them to try to sound like Ginger Baker when doing White Room or Badge. Even though they were playing the same notes they were all different. And they were all fantastic! If they were good enough to get a call from Clapton, that's good enough for me.
