Kill the drummer

Having dispatched more than my fair share over the years, I fully support this effort to kill the drummer. In SFH, both of ours are a pain in the ass, like all drummers, and we want to replace them with a Boss Dr. Rhythm. A drum machine doesn’t mooch as much beer, for starters, and it doesn’t talk back.

As one wise wag once observed: Q: What’s the last thing a drummer says in a band? A: “Hey, how about we try one of my songs?”

Give generously to this important campaign. It’s for the children, as they say.

    As we say in my group, the rhythm is too important to be entrusted to a drummer!

    there’s a new pedal from digitech that replaces the drummer. you play a chord progression and voila you’re in business. getting one as soon as they become available. oh wait take that back. it replaces the bass player too. not to worry though. I hear Harper is starting a band once he’s turfed. Stasi Steve and his spying machines. maybe they could use a pedal replaced bass player.
    seriously. the pedal is real. check it out.

    just bleedin’ hilarious…though, as our band’s drummer, I just keep playin’ the song I wrote while everyone else looks around tryin’ to figure what’s up, then they finally give up and give in…plus I own the PA…I just got back from rehearsal – thanks for the laugh
