    Man, you got the joke wrong!

    What do you call a guy who hangs out with musicians? The drummer!

  2. How can you make a drummer slow down?
    Put a sheet of music in front of him.

  3. ” There is no random generator like a human being”.___J Frusciante….

    Sorry opinions are like assholes…everyones got em.

    My points are on for human drummers, and keep drum machines in electronic music, otherwise all music will start to sound like that really bad french rock house where everyone tries to somehow sound like DFA and Mr OIZO imitated really badly.(DFA and OIZO rock btw).

    I pick up my guitar every few weeks, today while jamming along to some Santana I noticed how some of his timeings are so off! And I said wait thats beacuse he actually plays music and not programs it for perfect timing which randomn lil things you’d nitpick in a sequencer and be quick to quantize might sound good with a lil off timing in other styles of music .He didnt get to the top nitpicking quantize features thats for sure.

    ..as for the other side of the fence picture the intro break from Kraftwerks Numbers w/o a drum machine. cant live w/o them…nuff said!!

    Just keep em dancin!

  4. …Now if the robot somehow looked like it was made by Moog…lol..JK
    ..Just dont put the D-beam on the crotch Roland!

    Aaahhh…harhar…nice robot there…gotta love the way the snare rocks back and forth on the first track and his head banging…
    Nice jokes about the drummer…love it both ways…especially since my brother
    is a drummer (and a guitarist) who has no respect whatsoever for the music I love…
    Even though there are a few good drummers out there,I’d prefer a nice machine anyday.
    Hope Roland hears you on this one…

  6. What do you call a drummer that breaks up with his girlfriend? Homeless.

    Are these funny? haha.. Amazingly there is an entire website just for drummer jokes:
