there are several types of musician. each one ends up getting a different body type in a couple of years or so.

so my question is which musician of which instrument is the strongest?

Edit: we're talking generally, and i mean in a fight kind of strong.

The drummer, unless the guitarist in question is John Petrucci.

9/10 Bobo Jenkins just sounds godly in general. I think I'll name my firstborn child that. Male or female.

Sorry for the double post, But I think a drummer might have some fierce blows. If he's a double kick pedal drummer, Then watch out for his legs. Kickbox ya.

Then why don't you fix it? Christ, I hate when people do that.

But, for what it's worth, I met Mick a couple years ago and his handshake is so fucking fierce it hurts. He spoke and my chest rattled, who on Earth would mess with that guy?
You're*

I based my answer on the whole John Petrucci kicking my ass theory, hell if he even talked to me I think I'd be battered senseless!

I want to say bass players, but that one from Metalica who looks like Pocahontas says otherwise...
#16
I'd say vocalist or guitarist, not because what they are doing need that much strength, but because they consider themselfs as frontmen and (often) want to make the shooowwww which goes better wid big muzles huhuuuu

well and as a guitarist if you don't train you end up with forarms bigger than your biceps which is kinda ugly ^^
#17
well the thing is all the huge guys play guitar, I'm 6 feet tall and i love to shred.
and honestly If you take a look at Kerry Kings arms they are rather large, him and zakk wylde, hell even Dimebag had huge arms. it comes with the shredding, the more you move around the neck at lightning speeds, the stronger your muscles get in your hands and arms, and etc and etc.

To Sum Up that wall of text I think that the strongest gutiarist could arguably be, Zakk Wylde.

look at his arms in this pic, i think he might win.

Have you seen some of the vocalists out there? Eg, Dave Grohl, Corey Taylor, James Hetfield, Alex Varkatzas(trained Kickboxer) and pretty much any death metal vocalist (that isn't an emo pussy like Oli Sykes)
#20
you don't get muscles that big by playing. Naturally you would get thin but reeeealy strong muscle. Those guys lift weights to get such arms...
#21
I'm the only one to have voted keyboardist, by the looks of it.

Rob Trujillo is one huge mofo bassist. His arms are like Trujillo-Tanks.

I wouldn't want to be against him in a fight.

I heard someone say that Fall Out Boy had amazing guitarwork. But, it was a 13 year old girl, so it didn't matter.

I find drummers strong, but loads of bassists I know are really tall and well built naturally.
#39
The Rev from A7X must be crazy. He's a drummer, and he's pretty buff.

tbh, the only really muscular drummer I know is Danny Carey, most other drummers are either lean and lanky or fat
