No matter what I read today, this will be my favorite article of the day.

Oh yeah? Well, what do you call a self-absorbed asshole who hangs around with musicians?

The guitar player.

Heh. Touché.

Q: What do you call a drumer who just broke up with his girlfriend?

A: Homeless

(Ahhh, drummer jokes. They never get old.)

How do you know a drummer is at the door?

He is knocking off key and doesn't know when to come in.

Huh. I always thought it was the bass player who got the most abuse. "Everybody hates the bass player," according to the Kids in the Hall: http://www.kithfan.org/work/transcripts/one/bass.html

How many drummers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
None, they have machines for that now.

How do you get a drummer off of your front porch?

Pay him for the pizza.

A friend of mine was reading a book on this history of drums, called "From the Cavern to the Cave". Sums it up nicely.

BTW, how do you know when a drummer is knocking at the door? He speeds up.

I wasn't gonna answer this shit for fear of seeming a tad defensive, but as a drummer, let me just say that almost anybody can play drums, but almost nobody can play them well. I won't bother to go down the list, but there are a whole bunch of drummers who are some of the best musicians in the world. So there. Neener, neener, neener.

Bud,
Having been married to a "working" bass player for 15 years now, it IS the bass player who gets kicked around.
What is the difference between a bass player and a large pizza?
A large pizza feeds a family of four.

May I also add that "wife" and "working musician" (for any instrument) for longer than, oh say 4 years, is an endangered species...

Heh, Becky yeah that is what I have heard.
