Well, it's not too complicated - and that's the appeal of it. The in-the-pocket groove. It's like the famed Perdie Shuffle, the feeling of it is just sublime. Same case here, the production especially on the album makes the drums and particularly this rhythm sound even better. 

Additionally, i'd like to say that it isn't as easy as you think. A beginner drummer surely won't nail the song. Again, i'm also incorporating the feel and groove of it. The fact he makes it sound seamless is something that the rhythm calls for.

^ Sorry, I just don't hear any of that.

I guess to spot the little intricacies of the drum part I'd have to take a stab at it myself (but I don't have a kit), but I don't hear those little intricacies either.

Oh, well. ... Sucks for me.

I think that giving drumming a try would help the appreciation of the subtleties of the instrument. I guss it's also just a matter of varying taste of what we expect to hear and what we like to enjoy from a drummer. As a member of the Math-Rock Team as well as being a percussionist for 5 years I can assure you that i absolutely love hearing impressive chops and creative rhythms. I just also love hearing simplicity sometimes.

yep me too although it was an 'edit' from the original version which had a heavy keyboard/synth intro

Would Tom Sawyer count?

Actually hard to think of that many

Dance with the Devil by Cozy Powell has a great intro (later lifted by Boney M for Rasputin!), though I suppose the whole track is basically a drums showcase.

Split Enz' "Albert Of India" from the Waiata a.k.a. Corroboree - album; that has a subtle drum intro.
That band was really good at percussion.

All 'professional' means is that one earns money from what one does. It's not a measure of actual skill or quality. Instinctively you may think it is, but in reality....it isn't.

Absolutely. Tracey Emin and Damien Hirst are "professional" artists. Sorry, just couldn't resist that cheap shot.Embarrassed

I will just quote a well-known quite reasonable prog drummer - Mr Phil Collins.

"Phil Collins, who was himself influenced by Starr, said; “Ringo is vastly underrated. The drum fills on the song "A Day in the Life" are very complex things. You could take a great drummer today and say, 'I want it like that.' He wouldn't know what to do.”

Yes, Third Stone from the Sun! Wonder how they managed to get away with that and not credit it.

Any number of John Bonham's bone-crushing lead-ins. Often copied, never equalled.
