Re: What are some different carrers for us drummers?
Some of the 'safer' career options in music would be: Tech (studios and live. there will always be a market for competent guys who can man the sound desk), Managing/Booking (consider working with an agency, record label, promoter, publisher etc), working within a music shop, running your own live venue etc.
If you particularly want to play I'd encourage you to get into teaching. There's not a large percentage of drummers who make their money solely from gigging or recording.
Wishing I was Stanton Moore...
