What would be your drummer nickname?

I don't get to choose my own nicknames. I have one per band at the moment.

In Gloryhammer it's 'Ralathor, the Mysterious Hermit of Cowdenbeath'

In Jaldaboath it's 'Sir Benjamin Turcopolier, First Drummer Deluxe'

Sigh.

I have been given two nicknames over the years. My first was from some guys that played dungeons and dragons together. My board name there was Greek. "Snareamedes"

Then I had a keyboard player give me a native Indian nickname, my name is Don, so he called me "Gordon Two Sticks" pronounced "Gore- Dawn"

Memories. I had the nickname Train back in the 70s because I blew one of those big chrome train whistles to finish out my solos in a piece called The Iron Horse.

That is cool. That is how I got the name Drums in his heart. A friend, heavily into Lakota Sioux culture, gave me the name. I never can remember how to say it in Lakota.

My nickname for most of my long time friends and family is Titi... yeah, I know, doesn't cut it so well in English, doesn't it? Lol.

Some friends also call me The Coach!

Here on the forum I've been nicknamed, MAD (obvious), Swiss Smoothie and Swissman :)

It's too late for me to get a drummer-related nickname, but how's this for Def Leppard's drummer:

Rick "The Stick" Allen :)

I usually get "Red" or "Big Red" from being a bigger guy who is a ginger. I also am known by a lot of people in the area for working part time managing a local beer store, so I get "Beer Guy" a lot too. And I like beer, so it works in two ways.

my nickname is from drumming...
"spaz"


I got a little wasted at a show and did a 20 minute drum solo and went beast mode. They said I spazzed out on the kit and Spaz stuck ever since.

I've been teasingly called the "Barefoot drummer" cause I always play barefoot. Not really a nickname-had all kinds of nicknames growing up though Chipper, Arturo, Wally, and I got a lot of "Crazy" for some antics LOL.

I don't have a drumming alter-ego or nickname but last fall I played a huge gig (for us-2k people or so) and it was to be a two band bill all set up on one big stage. The other band was broken up but was really popular for many years around here. This was to be a reunion. Their drummer is with another band so they had a "sub" rehearse with them. Morning of the show, their "sub" lost his way ??? to the gig and I ended up volunteering to play their sets too. I ended up playing non-stop from 1-6 pm as we swapped bands mid-song every hour.

I am now known as Five Hour Bill.

Spaz is really politically incorrect in Britain. One of those words one dare not use.

I'd be dismissed from work if I used it in the office.

It's a great word by the way...but I can never use it :)
