    And there you have it.
    A good drummer is a band's heart beat. A good drummer who can drop the beat into the pocket and keep it there is always good in my view.

    The pocket is a subtle thing; a good drummer not only keeps the beat solid in rhythm and speed, they also give the other players the small cues as to when to come in, drop out, begin singing, and other essentials.

    The good drummer is always a joy to work with, even if they show up late and drunk sometimes. A bad drummer is always an uncertain, unpredictable pain in the butt to me.

    The best drummers are those who can set the speed, any speed, keep a complicated rhythm solid as a rock, and still have enough left over to wow me with a solo any time I hand one to him.

    Flash never hurts anything when it's well done and well-timed, but even a simply done extended drum solo can sound better than one that's flashy and has fallen apart to me.
    regards,

    Very artificial drumsound if you ask me (you didn't). Can some of it be prerecorded?
    Just asking because I read a lot that big artists use it a lot these days. Mostly because it should sound perfect or like the record.

    Stone cold pro. Seriously good drumming. Not that it takes anything from her talent and skill-plus rehearsals, likely she is working with a click track and perhaps cues in her in-ear monitors.

    If you asked her at a bar what she does & she said she was a drummer, I'd have choked on my beer. Not that she is bad at all, but far from the visual impression of your average drummer. I imagine her father would be one very proud man.

    Nah , I think it’s just the line off the board heavily compressed. Maybe her monitor feed?

    Im not ever one to slander any musical actor, but that is a simple 4/4 beat and nothing out of the ordinary. To rah rah a pro for keeping it in the pocket in this example is a bit of a reach.

    If this were a guy, no one would have blinked twice. I still think Sheila E is one of the most impressive drummers active today - male or female.

    That was good, but not good enough for me to take back anything I ever said about drummers. They're still drummers...

    It seems that there's a sequenced electronic hi-hat beat that she's keeping time with.

    Yeah. It’s good, it’s solid, but I’m not that impressed honestly.

    Rob Hirst?.....from Midnight Oil?.....63 years-old?.....NO WAY!!!!!!
    Yeah, this sounds processed, to a click track, even maybe pre-recorded, but I like the steady, solid beat. I've played with TOO many drummers (obviously not at this level) who simply can't keep time.
    BTW, one of my favorite drummers is Abe Laboriel, Jr......plays with Paul McCartney and Brian Ray, among many others. Often uses a "minimal" set.....like bass drum, snare, floor tom, and a couple of cymbals......he can do more with those than most drummers can do on Neil Peart's rig......

    Not wanting to riff from The Kinks, Lola, but it looked like the drummer was rockin' an opaque sportsbra under the sheer black body suit.

    The eyeliner is not a reliable tell, I understand.

    I listened again and the backup vocals sounds recorded. This is not to deminish the drummer...I just think it's an intresting side of the musicscene today and also worthy a discussion
