Thank God for Phil Rudd. I wonder how many of those great ole 60's and 70's multi million selling hits were recorded to a click track?.....Everyone today has lost sight of what its all about....musicianship and feel!...yep a strange alien concept huh? haha...
Kind of annoying when these comments constantly come up.
1) So much modern music incorporates drum loops, machine percussion and synth sequencers. It's irrelevant comparing contemporary music with 60's and 70's multi-million selling hits because they weren't incorporating synth sequencers and machine percussion. In any case, many clearly speed up, which most people agree is not great musicianship.
Regarding musicianship and feel - are you saying PMG with Paul Wertico or Antonio Sanchez lack 'musicianship' and 'feel'? Crazy stuff.
2) It arguably takes MORE musicianship and feel to deliver a great performance while playing with a click. Anyone can play without one.
