Even tho I think he was "sidelining" in that drum bit, its obvious Micky knew how to play drums. And man, do I love those Radio Kings!!

"sidelining"? never heard this term before. What does it mean?

Not actually playing what's heard...he's going through the motions of what's there though. You can see when he hits the cowbell and the hi-hat openings are not all there. Also a loud snare crack when he just gently tapped.

Thanks Olimpass. Yeah I noticed that in the clip, but I didn't know that's what it was called.

By the looks of things I believe that he could pull it off on his own.

keep in mind......when you "sideline" you are merely "miming"
" to a pre-recorded track. But from the looks of things, Mickey himself did the pre-recorded track.

Whenever you see those movies from the 40s, 50s and 60s with a famous drummer...they are "pretending" to play along to an already recorded track...which they themselves usually recorded in a studio.
