I was expecting to have to tell you to go fuck yourself for making a bass player joke, because bassists need at least two-thirds of a brain to do what they do.

yes, obviously a bass player here.

Drummer here- always bugged me how little credit bassists get. As a drummer, I've gotta be in perfect sync with the bassist, or else the entire band sounds like shit.

Bass is the glue. Also, most bassists can play guitar just as well or nearly as well as their lead guitarist. My pops played a 6-string, and he could melt faces with any guitar.

What do you call someone who hangs around with musicians?

A drummer!

C'mon, be honest, you just used this as an opportunity to tell everyone you play drums...Bass was never mentioned

A bassist playing out of the pocket will hurt your soul. They don't get the credit they deserve.

How can you tell if the stage is level?

And, in the same vein: What did the drummer get on his SAT?

Bonus:

What's the difference between a dead squirrel in the road and a dead saxophone player in the road?

I heard something similar years ago:

A man walks into a doctor's office. The doctor asks "What's your trouble, son?"

The man replies "I'm Irish, and I'm sick and tired of all the snide remarks about how I must be a drunk and so forth. Isn't there some sort of operation you could do to make me another nationality?"

The doctor ponders this for a moment, and replies "If we removed ninety percent of your brain, you'd effectively be a Polack, would that satisfy you?"

The man gushes with gratitude and shakes the doctors hand, and says "That'd be perfect, doc! Let's get started right away!"

As he's waking up after the operation, an intern rushes into his room and exclaims "Sir! Sir! There's been a terrible mistake! Instead of removing ninety percent of your brain, we removed ninety nine percent of your brain!'

The man gets up on one elbow in bed and says "Shee-hut! You got to be jivin' me, mo'fucker!"

There are some pretty phenomenal drummers out there, capable of far more musicianship than many/most contemporary artists, irrespective of their chosen instrument.

Gavin Harrison comes to mind as an excellent example:

Blake Richardson is another wizard behind the kit, but less listenable if you're not a fan of metal:

Both drummers are integral parts of their bands, Porcupine Tree and Between the Buried and Me; I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Gavin is the man, also a big PT fan here.

If you want to talk godly drummers though you can't forget Danny Carey. He isn't even human.

Yes I get the joke but music has really changed over the years, You almost never hear the lead guitarist also be the lead singer anymore, John Fogerty was great just to name 1, of course his better work was in CCR, his solo stuff was ok but you get what I am saying.
