Drummer joke

Post by Spiff »

Why is a drum machine better than a live drummer?













You only have to punch the rhythm into the drum machine once.

Feel free to add your own music-related jokes or CTC references.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

How many drummers does it take to change a lightbulb?






None. Drummers don't do anything.

How can you tell when a drummer's at your door?









The knocking gets faster and erratic towards the end.

What is the difference between a bad drummer and a vacuum cleaner?








You have to plug one of them in before it sucks.

An amateur drummer dies and goes to heaven. While he is waiting outside the pearly gates, he hears some incredibly fast drumming coming from within heaven. He immediately recognizes the playing, and asks St. Peter if that really is Buddy Rich playing drums in heaven. St. Peter responds:

"No, that's God. He just thinks that he's Buddy Rich."

How do you know a drummer's at your door?








He doesn't know when to come in.

I lol'd a bit on that one.

None. Drummers don't do anything.
I thought the punch line was "None, they have machines to do that now" or something.

A classic:
What do you call the guy hanging with a bunch of musicians?


The drummer.

Actually, the joke is supposed to be for bass players, but I needed to crank out something fast to needle you.

Q: How many drummers does it take to change a lightbulb?





A: Twenty. One to hold the bulb, and nineteen to drink until the room spins.
