Will The 4 Armed Robot Drummer Replace A Human?

Drummers absolutely hated drum machines where they first came on the scene, threatened by their perfect time. After a while, most learned to embrace the machine and live with it, with most drum machines getting jobs that a real drummer would never have gotten anyway.

But what happens when you have a robot that plays with perfect time? Here's a video of a 4 armed robot drummer doing his best Tommy Ramone imitation of "Blitzkrieg Bop," which I don't think will have drummers quaking in their boots -- yet. Notice that it (he?) never plays any fills, and the feel is very eh, robotic.

Sounds like he's already replaced a few from what I can hear on the radio lately.

Besides, everyone knows you need to replace the manager, not the drummer;-)

Forgot to mention, at least this one keeps better time than most drummers I've worked with...sorry fella's, you know who you are.

No feel, no fills :-)
