Are Rock Band Drums like Real World Drums?

Was Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopoulos spot on when he said that Rock Band would "training an army of a million drummers"? Maybe. It, at the very least, helped train one, Attack of the Show's Kevin Periera. He recently applied his 98% expert-level skills on Coheed and Cambria's "Welcome Home" to some real life Coheed and Cambria. (PS2, PS3, Rock Band, Wii, Xbox 360)

Wow f***** awesome that dude plays a real life drum perfectly just by playing Rock Band.

Lol at the drummer from the band, he's f****** nuts.

He was a drummer long before ROCK BAND came along...
Kevin Periera played the drums at least one other time on AOTS a couple of years ago.
That was a long time before Rock Band was ever released.
Good for him, getting up there and playing with a real band, but that ain't gonna happen for the rest of the Rock Band faithful.

I call bull, he's a drummer and a pretty good one.

No way he picked that up from game.

if anything, it helps drummers more than guitarists

Yeah he's gotta have some experience, it's not like he just got on there and visualized the game.

I actually watched this on AOTS and the Bret Micheals thought he was the real Coheed drummer and told him he sounded great. lol

On a side not i dont think Kevin plays the drums outside of rock band.

Kevin Pereira is a real drummer- I saw this back in 2005 or 2006:

No way
Yeah there is absolutely no way he could perform welcome home that well without ever trying it on a real drum kit. I play the *real* drums and while i can certainly see rock band improving skills with the snare and tom toms, there is no way it could help an amateur play the bass. On a real drum kit there is a pedal for the bass, and using three limbs at once is much harder than using two, so don't expect to master drums just because of rock band.

p.s. hes a pretty sick drummer... better than me! ;)

?!?!? Huh you use 3 limbs on rockbands drums. It has a bass pedal and on expert you play all the real bass hits that are in what ever song you are playing.
