Robin Hilton at NPR Music's All Songs Considered posted a pop quiz on Wednesday designed to test your Rock And/Or Roll drum fill knowledge, sending pro and amateur air drum enthusiasts--yes, there is such a thing as a pro musical mimic--into frantic conniptions, complete with girlish shrills of "OMG!
