Re: Do you want to be famous?
I find this thread a tad funny given that we're all "just" drummers.
It's highly unlikely that we will get any personal fame even if we hit it big with a huge pop band. The closest we would likely get is some cult fame with other drummers who can actually understand all the complicated things we do in the back of the stage behind the real musicians.
I ran across a interview with Grohl where he said something like "And I was just the drummer! I could have walked in the front door of a Nirvana concert and nobody would have a clue who I was, regardless that I was playing with the biggest band in the world at the time".
