So yeah we (my 2 friends and I) found a drummer, but he is 36 years old. He has been playing since he was 6, and is into the same music we are. With that said, were just a 15,16, and myself, a 17 year old. My parents are very biased against him for being some much older than us. Hell your all gonna say "Tell your parents to go **** themselves." But I just thought there would be a bit more subtle approach. Any ideas? Sounds like they will let us practice with him, just doesn't sound like they will be very cool with it.

It's very common in my area for people of all ages to be in bands together. The main reason is there is a lack of musicians.. so most of the time people take what they can get. I had a few friends who were all 16-19 and had a drummer who was 36. They said the main problem was he had issues with his kids and family. This will be the problem you'll run into the most. Keep in mind how hard it must be to manage your music when you have those liabilities. This is why he's auditioning. I agree with the person who said your parents should meet him.
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

My drummer is almost 10 years older than me. It works. He is an awesome drummer and likes the same music. Just have your parents meet him.

Yeah, that's creepy. I'm sure the situation is cool, but there's no reason for a 36 year old man to play with 15 year olds. Find someone your own age.
#12
Well, make sure he's not in it to stick it young arse.

And just be careful. He'll probably introduce you to things you might not like, and your parents might just not let him drum for you. Not to mention him balancing his schedule.

Yeah well im hitting 18 soon, but the other two are a bit young, and I don't think their parents would be tight with the idea. Just 'TOO AWKWARD' I suppose..... But idk..... I really have been patient for things to take off..... thought this might be a good opprotuniy... and he knows his shit so it doesn't sound like he's just a sicko, he called not knowing we were the age we were.

Yeah I'm with this guy... there must be a drummer your own age somewhere. He's twice your age.
