Altho drummers don't always practice, they remain true to a genuine spirit of hard-hitting cooperation with other members of their bands, driving them ahead. They are also influenced by the music coming from other instruments and incorporate it into the overall experience, hence helping to shape the music. This is why other members of the band should always play well, since they are influencing the drummer.
Drummers have the Power of Rock 'n' Roll at their command.

Plays with the precise action that only a master craftsman can obtain. Thats right, with sticks. Only people with the right personality combination can become a drummer. That person blessed will also probably have to owm some sort of 'kit' to play with. And although guitarists are cool, there're one-hundred a penny. Sadly.
Singer: I'm not so cool I can read music but dont play and insturment, I am pretyer than the guitarist.
Bassist: No one knows my name but me and the drummer are best freinds and the band depends on us to keep them on the right line.
Drummer: Me and the bassist pay the bills, find the gigs, and are never given any credit for being in the band.
