I'm a drummer, and I'm 51. Let me tell you...age does have something to do with this. When I was younger, I know I used to beat the hell out my kit, and try to play like Keith Moon on every song. Yeah...maybe it was fun, but the young & stupid phrase really is true.
"Less Is More"...that's the best advice I can give any drummer almost 45 years of playing. Keep the beat and stay in the pocket. If you don't know what the word "pocket" means, then find out.
Learn to play a good SOLID shuffle, that you can LOCK into like a clock.
LOCK that shuffle with the bass player and stay there. Now, an un-cooperative bass player is a whole different story, but that's for another thread. 8)
Good shuffle skills will take you a helluva long way in the blues. And you can vary that damn shuffle in how many ways? Probably hundreds...
Also, you don't need all those drums and cymbals. I don't think any drummer needs over a 4 piece kit, 1 ride cymbal, and a couple of crashes at most. "Less IS More". REMEMBER THAT!
And gimme a call when you learn how to do the Sam Lay double shuffle note-for-note. 8)

Sometimes when you're playing you just have to turn loose of your Rudiments and use both hands.

I've worked with Jazz drummers who fit the bill.

Bill Choy (AKA Travellin' Joe) was about the best I've been on a gig with.
