Ba-Dum-TUSH


[via]

Rolling Stone released a 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time list but we here at Infomaniac would like to know...

Do you Bitches have a favourite drummer?

Do you play the drums or have you ever taken a lesson?

Have you ever slept with a drummer?...

    1. LX: There’s another version of that cartoon I posted where the mother says, “It could have been worse. It could have been a guitar player.”

  3. BOTH my brothers played the drums.
    I only wanted to lick their teacher.

    2. Forgive me not having been my sharpest earlier today (I'm actually working for a change & exhausted).

      How I looked at this and didn't include the words RIM SHOT is beyond me.

      From Wikipedia: "A rimshot is a percussion technique used to produce an accented snare drum backbeat. The sound is produced by simultaneously hitting the rim and head of a drum with a drum stick." (emboldening courtesy of Norma).

  5. "Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum, on my drum?"

    I've had a few good bangs in my time, but not sure any of them played percussion. Jx

    1. JON: The Little Drummer Bowie.

      Coincidentally, I watched this very clip yesterday whilst in a “missing Bowie” mood.

    2. Coincidentally, we also saw it this week - it was featured in the series Gregory Porter's Popular Voices, in an attempt to place Bowie in the "crooners" category alongside Bing et al. Jx

    1. DINAHMOW: Is “went out” a euphemism like “slept with?”

    2. The van broke down after playing at a dance (out in the boonies of course!) and we all huddled under instrument blankets(no, dear! old army blanket we wrapped around instruments to protect them on country roads) and, yes, slept.No room for sex in a crowded van.

    3. DINAHMOW: “Instrument blankets” … teehee.

  8. One of my best friends is a drummer, and he's astonishingly cute, but he likes girl-pie.

    Aside from that, like many of the other commenters here, considering how many men got lucky with me, surely one of them was a drummer. It's just statistics.

    1. MISS SCARLET: Flings with several drummers?

      All at the same time or separately?

  10. Ummmmm - I'm pretty certain that is NOT the recommended use for a drumstick.

      What novel? Did I miss something?

    2. p.s. to Damien: For a couple of months, your blog was inaccessible. It said, “This blog has been removed.” Now your blog is accessible but has a post from July saying it’s your last post.

      But by poking around, I now see this … “Theta” a novel you’ve written on a different site.

      To summarize…

      A Homosexual Strongman... A Vampiric Elder... A Lycan Aristrocrat... A Mutant Pastoralist... A Dimunitive Acrobat... A Digital Model... A Folkloric Field Agent... A Resolute Immortal... A Dark Leader... A Plague Unleashed

      I hope you are well.

    5. DAMIEN: We’ve missed you too.

      Unusual pairings.

  12. One of my loves played lute.

    The correct German expression is "Schlagwerk" - it is basically "anything else", anything that is not summable under the other departements in an orchestra, like woodwinds, brass, etc.

    I "know" some drummers like Krupa and this guy from Rare Earth, of course Collins, Moon et al., but they are such "workers", it's all swaet & hammering, ach ...

    Jazz drummers are much more sophisticated. Look what Tony WIlliams did, just the most prominent name I guess. Zappa made excessive & excellent use of the Schlagwerk in his works - there is so much to hear & discover.

    BTW I doubt that drumsticks really "do" the prostrata, why not stay with the good old fisting ? Ach, I'm becoming conservative after all ...
