Nobody takes pictures of the drummer


I recently realized that nobody takes pictures of the drummer. Drummers do most of the work in a band. With out them the music would not flow right and everyone would be off beat.I personally play drums in a hardcore punk band called The Creepy Kids. It's a lot of fun, but a lot of work. So for this post I decided to show the world a glimpse of how much work it is to play the drums.

Excellent Video. I could watch videos of drumming for 8 hours straight, then a short 15 break to walk around, then 8 more hours of drumming.

I used to attempt to drum, but nothing of the scale you've got going here. I can attest to the fact that it's a work out.

I really appreciate the short moment where you pull the bass drum back to you. Damn things are always trying to escape.

The first video I posted to the Laboratory in 2004 was a clip of V mangling the drums:

Drummin! I always watch the drummer to know how serious the band is, kind of. If they look halfway out of their minds, I know their hearts are in it.

I just made that up.

hey, ANDREW, what do you call someone who hangs out with musicians? A DRUMMER! ha-HAH! a saxophonist told me that one.

I hear that no respeck thang, and the workout thang. That stationary drum shot was pretty nice, I was definitely mesmerized, only half able pay attention to what you were saying.

Lemme know next time you guys play IC.

It is hard to keep the beat and pull the bass drum back from clear across the room. As someone who attempted to learn the drums this summer and only kind of failed I can relate.
