Technique vs. groove.

The only time I’m really inclined to photocopy a fill is when the fill itself is either integral to the groove (and I guess not really a fill then e.g the Ticket to Ride groove) or just a super famous part of the song (like In the Air Tonight).
What is interesting about that fill was it was itself an improvised part. I read somewhere he did multiple takes with multiple different fills and that one just happened to be the favorite.

I didn’t know that one but it makes sense. I think if I were to change that fill the least offended person would be Phil. He does a pretty cool cover of the Golden Slumbers medley for a George Martin tribute album where he changes Ringo’s only solo quite a bit.
