What do you really need to succeed as a drummer? One thing of the utmost importance: SIMPLICITY.
C’mon guys we’re not in the 80s anymore, long gone are the days of endless tom rails and strange beautiful FX cymbals coming from all over the world.
Today a good drummer must be able to groove and express himself with a simple 4 piece kit and 3 cymbals, call it drum minimalism or whatever… I think SIMPLICITY, doing one thing extremely well vs doing many things shabbily.
This Queens of the Stone Age drum cover of “Keep your eyes peeled” is a hymn to simplicity, simple parts, very close to what the other instruments play and yet everything sounds so well!
