How much of an impact do drums make to the sound of a band?

The answer is told in “Count Me In,” a brilliant Netflix music documentary that supports the claim that the drummer is the engine that propels the overall sound.

This “must watch” production makes obvious why one of the greatest drummers of all time, Buddy Rich, stated “average band with a great drummer sounds great, great band with an average drummer sounds average.”

“Count Me In” showcases the legends:  Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, Ringo Starr, and Charlie Watts,  among others.  We viewers get new insights, and appreciation,  into the contributions of these elite musicians
