Iron Man is a pretty slow song....

Doing an oasis set at the moment on drums, not the most exciting parts to play. But the rest of the instruments and arrangement make it fun because the band is tight and we all play off each other. Maybe speak to the bassist about the groove of certain songs?

Just to clear this - Europe is actually a hard rock band, maybe even a pop rock band.

Don't know what to say there, you'd have to figure out if you want to still be in the band or not. I am sure there are other fun songs there for you, and you can always join a second band that is more progressive if covers are what these guys want to do.

From personal perspective - a lot of this material is hard to pull off competently so I am not sure it is so boring as you describe it. Bill Ward's parts in Black Sabbath are fantastic and one of the reasons why they are so huge.

Yeah the tighter you get the more freedom you will have because you will all be on the same page. Each member needs to be sure to listen more actively than they are playing though. If each member is only focused on their own parts, then you will not be tight and won't feel a connection to the music.
Only play what you hear. If you donít hear anything, donít play anything.
