Steve, Great bands were known for their drummers. Keith Moon, Mick Fleetwood, Steve Jansen etc ;) Do you think the importance of a really tight and expressive drummer has diminished now that a machine can probably play as fast, as complicated and won’t miss a beat?

Absolutely not, drumming isn’t just about speed and complexity, unless the aim is to make records for the Guinness book. Drumming is about feel, style and design. I wouldn’t drive a hideous car just because it went fast and had lots of buttons.
