I see a lot of post about "gui****s" but not much about crappy drummers. Did a pick-up gig last night with two guitars, keys and a drummer. Everyone was pretty good except the drummer, he was awful! He really wasn't even a drummer, just one of these guys that owns dozens of kits, reads Modern Drummer magazine, talks a big game, etc. but in reality can't play to save his life. Everything was boom bap boom bap boom bap (kick snare kick snare etc). I'd tell him "This is Route 66 with a swing feel." Boom bap boom bap. "This is a reggae tune." Boom bap boom bap. The solution? Plenty of vodka tonics. Just needed to vent so it wouldn't fester inside me and grow a cancerous tumor. Carry on.
