Move over, instrumentalists, the drummers have something to say. No longer just the people on the back of the stage, they may turn out to be the brains of the operations.
“It’s one of those common movie stereotypes: In a rock band, the lead singer/guitarist is presumably the leader, the keyboardist the smart one, the bass player is the bad boy, and the drummer is the simpleton. Then you get one scene or two where the simpleton drummer has a moment of genius, and everybody stares at him like he’s grown two heads.
But it turns out, according to science, that stroke of genius may not be too far from the truth.”
