What is your favorite drummer joke?

At the audition.....

He sits at the drums and the band leader says, "Can you play a samba pattern with your bass drum?"

The drummer obliges with a boob b boom samba pattern. The leader then asks "can you add a Mozambique cowbell pattern along with that with your right hand?"

The drummer thinks "I can do that, no problem" and obliges, giving it his best Steve Gadd possible. He is then told, "Now add a 2-3 clave with your left foot on hihat" ..The drummer's struggling a little but gets it happening . Next he hears, "Now add a cascara pattern on the snare with your left hand." Years of studying Gary Chester and listening to world music finally come to fruition and the relieved drummer finds he can play the whole pattern with no problem.

Pleased with himself, he asks the band leader "So, do I get the job?

"No " says the bandleader "that's why we fired the last guy!!"

The guitarist of a band walks into their rehearsal room and sees the bassist and the drummer having an argument
Guitarist: "Why are you arguing?"

Bassist: "The drummer detuned one of my strings."

Guitarist: "So what's the problem?"

Bassist: "He won't tell me which one

How do you tell if the stage is level?
The drummer is drooling from both sides of his mouth

This is, without a doubt.......the single best drummer joke I have ever heard.

This is one I made up and I'll let you finish it.
What do you get when you cross a drummer with a vacuum cleaner ?

I don't like drummer jokes. Squirrely bass players, volume-war guitarists and can't-count-through-a-stop singers are the jokes I've played with and they ALL like drummer jokes.
