About a month or two ago I was with my wife at the local farmer’s market, and I saw a couple of musicians whom I’ve worked with before. Wondering why they hadn’t called me in eons for a gig, I quickly noticed that they were using a drum machine, rather than a regular drummer!
Maybe I’m biased because they didn’t use me, but I hate to say it but their music sounded really “cheesy” without a real drummer.
Sorry, folks. Musicians need to use real drummers. It just makes the band’s sound more authentic!
