we're all meant to be drumming using telepathic hand gestures or something, surely?
it does seem like there are no drummers alive. anywhere.
people want them for their SKINS
and they're both in several bands
Lostprophets: "Finding a drummer in LA is the hardest thing imaginable."
Raz: "No. My dick in your mum is the hardest thing imaginable."
you've surpassed yourself.
But actually the hardest thing imaginable is the stainless steel bolt that they use to drive through cows' brains at the abbatoir. fact.
They'll all stop taking the piss out of drummers soon, if it was all so easy, then why can't anyone do it? ;)
finding a drummer isn't hard, finding a good drummer who wants to play with a shit band is nigh on impossible.
good drummers want to play in creative bands like Sikth, Tool, Oceansize, Immune, etc
therefore, I think bands should be more open to input from all members, then drummers would stick around longer or feel the need to play in less bands in order to satify creativity or even pay the bills. oh and be more metal for fucks sake!! :)
difference between a drummer and a drum machine? you only have to punch in the drum machine once...
knew it wouldn't be long, when I use a drum machine, I program it, punching it would break it ;)
But also, drummers are cunts, almost without exception.
I mean people who call themselves "a drummer" - know all the names of the kit models, buy drumming videos, wear sleeveless tops to expose their big muscles - idiots.
The good ones want to show off - the shit ones are shit - in both cases they are both usually insane / a cunt.
The best drummers are the ones that dont practice much - maybe they also play another instrument too. Ones who are constantly struggling to be able to play whatever it is that they are playing. Being too good is boring. I hope, when it comes to drums at least, that I never get to a point where playing stuff is easy.
sounds like you're talking about me there fella.
I think it depends how old you are too, personally, I've got bored with all the band bullshit, no-one is to blame, they're all equally as culpable.
This is why I hardly practice anymore, write my own tunes and play guitar, bass, piano and sing. Much more productive and less confrontational.
Maybe cuntish drummers are that way coz everyone treats them with such contempt?
"just play a fuckin beat" or "that's shit, play what I want" or "i've changed all that song so you have to change your drums" or "i've written the drums, just play along to this"
perhaps people that say things like this are more to blame for drummers being cunts, rather than the drummers themselves.
Respect is reciprocated
fuckwit that hangs around with musicians? aaaah dru- eh, repeat until funny I say...
a majority of people in bands are tossers really, "yeh aaarm inna baaarrrnd maaaaan, moosical revoluushun an' all that! d'ya like Cast?" if I was a drummer I'd lock myself in a garage to avoid, well, people like me probably... and whinging drummers...
