Some dynamic microphones (such as the Shure PG/SG 58) don't pick up sounds not directly into them, so they wouldn't pick up drums. However, seeing as your drums will be playing at the same time as the vocals, I don't see a problem?

if ur going to play some american idiot stuff heres the settings:

Master Volume : 0
i dunno about the rest

bands like atreyu do stuff like that....
it goes against the whole 'drummers can't be frontmen' myth so I think its ok

and yeah, Shure PGs are pretty good, my music shop stocks them and I saw this guy trying one out on a pearl kit
it sounded pretty good, considering he was playing pretty heavily
If you play Twisted Sister's 'Burn In Hell' backwards, you get a message telling you to go to church and pray every sunday.

Ever heard of the fantastic Jellyfish?

And of course, Ringo did for multiple songs, and we're just seeing a new band, Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders

You can just use a regular microphone, but of course you'll need a boom mic stand to adjust the height.

ya Don Henly is the most noteable mention i think

Taylor Hawkins and the Coattail Riders. Taylor sits at the front of the stage, does lead vocals, and (naturally) plays the living crap out of the drums. I believe he had a Shure mic when I saw them on TV.
A strange man deficated on my sister.

My band's drummer sings. He just uses a dynamic mic. A boom stand will be needed so you can have the mic stand out of the drummer's way.
#15
you might want to invest into a headset mic later too though, just so he can move around a little more and still singing, because i know how that is...

I couldn't imagine having the cordination to, but it's perfectly fine.

Also Roger Taylor from Queen sings and plays drums at the same time.

Guitar Hero says "Dont give the drummer a mic, it will only end up in tears" lol sounds true, but make sure your drummer has a higher maturity than the frontman and youll be fine
