In the car the other day

We heard the Bee Gees' GREASE theme on the radio -- I had never noticed before that there's a drum break near the end of the song. I imagine few people have ever noticed it, including the drummer and possibly the producers. It's not so much a short drum solo as the other instruments just rest for a couple of bars. I wonder if that was intentional. Nobody told the the drummer it was his chance to solo? I hope he got at least one chance to shine on tape; I would assume that they don't let you into the Drummers Hall of Fame for just counting to four consistently a few times when people might be listening.
