Eh? When did hitting things with sticks stop being fun? I don't understand.Russ Pitts said:
QFT. Russ, as a drummer and an Oxford student I feel somewhat insulted by your article. We aren't all alcoholic no-hopers with zero prospects in life other than sitting morosely at the back of a stage watching while the rest of the band gets laid. I'm not proficient enough at other instruments (I've played piano and guitar in the past, didn't give up willingly on the latter) to write full songs like Juan Regular here, or at least, not so much that I can do it on the fly. I'm sure I could given time. I do, however, come up with all of the drum parts for the band, and am regularly complimented on them by the others.Juan Regular said:And being a drummer kicks ass by the way. It's the most fun instrument to play. (...) As soon as you've mastered a new ryhtm, you can play it as easy as walking down the street. There's no real need to concentrate, you can just bash those toms and snares and cymbals and rock out. It's definitely the most fun of all instruments.
