Drummer jokes

From Academic Kids

Drummers and percussionists are the butt of countless jokes, often impugning their musicianship and/or their intelligence. These are naturally unfair generalisations but are enjoyed by many drummers and non-drummers alike. In some countries the instrumentalist in question is not the drummer but bass player.

Famous drummers which well known for their use in comedy include Ringo Starr and the Muppet character, Animal.

Examples of this include:

What's the difference between a drum machine and a drummer?
You only have to punch the information into the drum machine once!
What do you call someone who hangs around musicians?
A drummer.
How many musicians does it take to make a jazz quartet?
Three, plus a drummer.
Drummers have the rhythm in their blood. Bass players usually have only alcohol in their blood.
A drummer walks into a shop and asks for a set of guitar strings. The guy behind the counter says "you're a drummer, aren't you?". The drummer says "Yes I am, how did you know?". The guy behind the counter says "because this is a damn newsagent!".
How can you tell a drummer's on the doorstep?
The knocking speeds up, and he doesn't know when to come in.
How do you get him off the doorstep?
Pay for the pizza.
What do 7-11 coffee and Ginger Baker have in common?
They both suck without Cream.
How do you know when the stage is level?
When drool comes out of both sides of the drummer's mouth.
A man goes to an exotic tropical island for a vacation. As the boat nears the island, he notices the constant sound of drumming coming from the island. As he gets off the boat, he asks the first native he sees how long the drumming will go on. The native casts about nervously and says "very bad when the drumming stops.". At the end of the day, the drumming is still going and is starting to get on his nerves. So, he asks another native when the drumming will stop. The native looks as if he's just been reminded of something very unpleasant. "Very bad when the drumming stops," he says, and hurries off. After a couple of days with little sleep, our traveller is finally fed up, grabs the nearest native, slams him up against a tree, and shouts "What happens when the drumming stops?!!". "Bass solo." he replies.
