The electronic sticks don't have the weight distribution, "bounce" and feel of real drumsticks. These are only good for bashing on stuff, not for practicing and applying the form, rudiments and finesse that in part comprise a real drummer's complex musical craft. To achieve this latter aim, one must have both drumsticks AND an oscillating tympanic membrane ("skins") to bounce them against.
Drummers are "dummies" who "bash things with sticks"!?
And Billie Holiday - I suppose she just went onstage and bitched about men. (However, Keith Moon: DUMMY).
