You've heard the jokes.

We're lazy, thick, drool from the mouth - and most commonly - we're always late for band practice?

Question: Are you always late? Are you lazy? Do you fit the stereotype?

My drummer is extremely lazy. Complains about how beats I make are too fast and he gets tired, even though they're rather slow (at least to me)

So i suppose 2+2=4 is a stereotype as well?

Thats a Mathematical equation. Stereotypes usually happen for a reason. For example:


Quote by Gyoung1991
All the drummers I have had have been perpetually late.

My drummers are the energetic ones. And they're almost always on time since the bands practice at their house most of the time. The punk drummer has been late a few times, but he brought the weed so its okay.

The bassist is usually the late one tho...

Late: Rehearsal is usually at my house since I'm not enough of a playa to have a professional practice space, so no.

Lazy: Haha I learned an entire 45 minute set of fairly demanding material on short notice within like... 3 days. So nah.

My friends old bands drummer was 3 hours late to practice. At his own house.
Obviously Fassa.
#12
We abuse our drummer.
We make fun of him so much, but oddly enough he plays better when he's butt-hurt.
The first week that he was in our band, he called me every single day, sometimes twice a day. Eventually I told him to **** off and stop calling.
Do you realize how many fap sessions were interupted?

Exactly. It wouldn't be a stereotype if it wasn't true.

Our drummer looks like Justin Bieber. For the most part he's the silent one anyway, just goes with the flow.

My last drummer had the distinction of being routinely late for practice. This was particularly impressive because we practiced at his house. The result was the entire band sans him having an unplugged jam session for half an hour on his porch.

all drummers i've met are either late for practice, too much of a random mess (they fool around too much), or they just bail out without saying a word. haha

I dunno, I've been with two drummers so far.

One of them is a friend of mine, he's a bit hyper and silly and shit but he's a terrific guy and not lazy or late he possibly fits only in the "hyper drummer" stereotype.

The other guy is someone I am sorry I will never talk to because I am too embarrassed to, he looked like one of the more intelligent people I've met and he could drum and he definitely wasnt lazy/late.

Drummer jokes!

How do you get the drummer out of the house?

Pay him for the pizza!

-bu dum tis-

Anyway, I guess I fit the drummer stereotype a bit. People I know always joke that drummers go crazy because they spend all day thinking of beats and grooves that they can't get out of their head, which I think has some truth to it. Oh, and I am NOT lazy!

Actually thats what my guitar players were like, not me. I was always the one who had to push for a new song and hunt people down for practices. I noticed from some guitar players they hate it when their drummer is good lol. The guitar player likes to be the guy that shines in the band, so when you have a really good drummer that can bring a lot to the band the guitarist gets jealous. I also joke around with guitar players a bit. I used to always say to my old band mates, are you guys here to play in a band or compete with each other? One guitarist would turn his back to the other when the other played a better riff then him I had a few good laughs out of that.

If he's a great drummer, patch things up and jam with him.

as spending 99% of my musical life as a guitarist, the drummer stereotype i would put out there, is that for the life of them, while the other band mates are talking, they can't stop making noise/hitting drums/cymbals.

i fit the stereotype too if i am sitting on the throne, i just can't sit there and not hit things.

but i am no where near the abillity to be in a band atm i just started three months ago...

Late: When i drummed for a couple bands i was always on time the one to phone people who were late (normally singers ¬_¬ and get them to get their arses to practise

Laziness: I was always being commented on being very Kieth Moon like and while more technical drummers would ook down on that i always gave 110% for every song and learnt every song my band mates said and trust we only did like 5 out of 20 we said we were going to do

so i don't agree with that sterotype but i am also a guitarist so that may have something to do with it :P

Uh, I think all I can think of now is every so often he'll screw with practice time (even though it's at his house), and while he gets incredibly upset at me or the other guitar player for playing while he's talking (hey, another stereotype, yes I am of fault :P), he's been known to be a hypocrite and take a while to warm up/ keep playing when I ask for silence so I can deal with a broken amp.
