Today, my band and I played at our first ever real gig. Our drummer turned up high out of his damn mind. After ruining our act with his godawful performance, he screamed "HELL YEAH!" then ran and dove off the stage into a nearly non-existent audience. We were told to never come back. FML

It's like that episode of Family Guy where Peter and Lois get high to sing in front of the crowd, and all they're really doing is yelling into the mics.

We dont know what he was high on. If he was just smoking weed then he probably would have known better. But he could have been tripping out on mescalin for all we know.

My brothers band has the same problem with their douche bag of a drummer. For some reason they think they are the most important part of the band. Sorry bout ur gig though. Don't worry there will be many more to come

First time I ever read that about drummers. That's the kind of things I have rather heard about guitar players or singers actually. I guess you can play any kind of instrument and still be annoying though.

They do lead tempo to a degree but are not necessary in a band. You can easily keep the tempo with just two guitarists or a guitarist and a bassist if they have even the slightest bit of talent. In order of importance in a band it goes #1 singer #2 guitarist #3 bassist #4 drummer. (All depending on style of music of course) but that being said no one would just go to see a drummer by him/her self. They are just filler to the background.

It's common knowledge 46. Would u go to just see a drummer play? Hell no. Would you go see just a singer? Definitely. Would you go see just an acoustic show? Definitely. Hell I would go see a violinist before seeing just a drummer.

Um, yeah not every has the same answers to those questions, so I guess it's not "common knowledge" to the me and the other people who obviously don't agree with you.
