We need one that isnt a mercenary cock - do they exist? i think no, prove me wrong!
He used to be a guitarist though so maybe that's a factor.
not including Grohl...
I think he's a right egotistical cock.
The fact that I'm not only a huge SDRE/William Goldsmith fan but also a huge Courtney Love fan probably has a lot to do with my opinion but some of it at least is based on fact.
Oh, I guess you all have no idea what went on between Goldsmith and Dave Grohl's first wife, huh? Dave had a very good reason for ousting that guy from the band.
You need someone with an awareness of music, and not just drum techniques that they're desperate to show off.
we're running out of options!
so fluke really.
you'll never find one, ever. Your best bet is to convince someone you know who's already a good musician, to buy a cheap drumkit and become your drummer. It doesn't take long to learn beats good enough for most bands. That's what I did at least - my band needed a drummer, so I borrowed the money to buy a kit and figured it out as I went along.
are in short supply, particularly drummers with their own van or practice space, they will be in high demand, therefore probably several bands, and so can fuck people over.
if one band starts going somewhere they can drop their other ones like so much hot dogshit.
A drummer is bored of being insulted by other musicians for only being a stupid drummer, so he decides to show them he has musical talent.
One day he proudly walks into a shop and declares 'I want to buy a guitar, what les pauls have you got?'. The man behind the counter says 'You're a drummer aren't you?'.
Shocked the drummer gasps 'Yes! How did you know?' the man replies 'Cos this is a greengrocer's'.
With a drum machine you only have to punch the information in once.
that exact joke in terra's drummer thread.
I'm trying to remember where I nicked it from. A book Mark Radcliffe wrote I think...
but I have read that book 'showbusiness' - it was good.
PWLFACT: Mark Radcliffe and I went to the same school. Not at the same time.
Sir Ian McKellan

Mark Radcliffe didn't go to my school. JK Rowling grew up not far from where I live though. And allegedly Dick King-Smith originally based "Babe" on my home village but I've never heard that confirmed.
Alumni of my school include former Liverpool footballer Nicky Tanner and former West Brom/Forest manager Gary Megson. Apparently.
...so he decides to show them he has musical talent...
and asks the assistant to show him "that lovely red trumpet hanging over there". "ok" said the shop keeper.
"Now I'd like to try out that big accordian you have there",
"look mate," said the assistant, "you can have the fire extinguisher, but the radiator is staying where it is!"
Thank you. I'll be here all week.
I always thought they'd just be guitarists who are easy going enough to play bass but....they're just weird.
He's usually a guitarist in his own band though so maybe that's why.
For some weird reason everyone in my band is primarily a guitarist but playing a different instrument. Except the guitarist, who used to be a bassist.
should be seen and not heard.
- so come on mr violet, why are you nice?
i use all my holiday time visiting my sick dad. i haven't had a proper holiday in years.
i like cats.
everyone says i'm nice. when i was a teenager girls wouldn't go out with me because ' i was too nice'.
is that nice enough? hahaha.
and i'm well good.
and i hate all this 'the thing about FUCKING drummers is...' nonsense talk that's going on.
it hurts my feelings.
because it's also a word for doctor's poo and it makes me giggle.
That track is justification for any band sacking their drummer!
if there is no band there is no drummer,but if there's no drummer there is always a drum machine. Thats what my boyfriend says anyway.
new order have a drummer. a very good one at that.
other band members shouldn't be such egotistical cocks, then perhaps their drummers would stay with them for longer.
What are the 2 most requested band members? drummers and singers, why? because they both have original talent that not many people can do and they never get on with each other.
Drums are my first instrument, but I also sing, play guitar, bass and keyboards which helps me understand what they other band members have to do. There is a very limited amount of singers, guitarists and bassists that could just play a beat, maybe it's time that they learned
bordering on sociapathic. Sounds like we've both just had bad experiences drummerboi - shame you live in Leeds.
its just most of those ive been in bands with ahve been a nightmare.
have - sorry.
because they're at the back. If everyone followed the example of Shellac and put them on level with the other musicians then all would be well.
And although i come across as a complete cock sometimes, i'm actually really nice in person. Trust.
