Must be able to play to a click, because lord knows the bass player can't.
Must be a team player, and by team, we mean you'll do whatever we tell you to do, with no opinions of your own.
Must be a quick learner, because we often forget our own songs, and it would be helpful if you could be there to remind us how they go.
Must be sober and drug free, because we need a designated driver.
Must be financially secure, because we have no money, and when we finally make it big, we're not sharing the publishing with you anyways.
HA! Pretty funny. I'd also add:
Must not play double bass.
Must not have more than two of those drums that face upward.
None of those loud Asian simbols.
Must not play loudly enough to be heard.
