Mick Fleetwood, legendary drummer for Fleetwood Mac, admits he prefers an "emotional" approach to the kit, rather than a technical one; in fact, Fleetwood says that when it comes to drumming, he "doesn't really know what [he's] doing."
"As a percussion player, I approach my own work in a very emotional, personal way," Mick told Music Radar, "and so I have to rely on one thing, the essence of feel."
"I didn't always understand what it was, and I used to be insecure about that, but now I truly know that I feel most comfortable when I'm emotionally involved."
Part of drumming, he observed, is knowing when to layback:
"I really am happy doing something simple and getting a lot out of it. I knew, through listening to the blues, when not to play, and I became an expert at it."
