Correct, but real life has always been that way as well. SM has simply become a magnified extension of it, and the freedom to exploit oneself (essentially at no cost) has brought such players to a worldwide audience they never could have reached otherwise. Perhaps that exposure also helps keep them in their place, out of the way of actual working drummers.I'm getting burned out on drumming on social media. It's all linear grooves, beat displacements and odd times. You'd think every gig out there is designed to have the drummer express his or her creativity at all times. I love that stuff, but you can't play that on most gigs.
But I really don't worry about those types, they help keep me employed.
