Little Drummer Solo

Okay, so on the way to work today we’re listening to some of the aforementioned Christmas music when “The Little Drummer Boy” comes on. The Jars of Clay version of this is one of my favorites, but this one was a little more modern as well, played by Mercy Me. As I’m listening I think, you know what, most of the time we don’t get to hear that little drummer boy really jam. I think if you do that song you should be required to allow your drummer to have a drum solo and really just wail on it. Otherwise, you’re just using the little drummer boy for the song and not really featuring him. Maybe that’s the hard rock side of me speaking, but I just think that’s the way it should be.
