Seriously, how good a drummer is Stewart Copeland. ‘So Lonely’ is a perfect song

He plays juuuuuust fractionally ahead of where the beat would 'normally' beat.

Gives the band that snappy / bouncing pacing

He's an instrumentalist not simply a drummer

I think it’s more common work. All instruments support each other.

He is so underrated. He’s an amazing talent. I think there very few, if any, drummers that can play the hi-hat the way he does.

I don't think anyone who knows anything about drumming underrates him.

I remember a Sting interview saying that, after a reunion of sorts, it had been great to be back together again, but soon the old frustrations returned, including Copeland's speeding up and slowing down.

Some love footage has confirmed that for me since then. Am I alone?
