A drummer is a percussionist who can create music with drums. You can have ensemble well-trained instrumentalists and experienced musicians in your band, but one can create the impact that a drummer can create. The role of a drum can form the base part of the music, while your pianos and guitars take it to the next level. But remember the roof cannot stand alone without the basement. The liking for guitars and pianos have risen so much so that we do not even realize the importance of knowing the role of a drummer in a troop. If the drums go wrong, the whole piece of music will find its way to the trash.
None of us, except a very few, are attracted to drummers, like we are to the other instrumentalists.
