hmm, i have 2 views on this

1) Drummers would naturally get all the girls becoz we are usually have the bigger muscles and strong appearance...

2) then again i think this is cancelled out from the fact tht after the gig, we get all sweaty and smelly, girls=gone :shock:

Lesson for this story = always take Lynx with u to a gig , and a good towel :D 8)

I havent noticed any increase of the ladies since I started drumming. So I vote no on this one.

Well I have atheory of my own on this one. Some of you may have heard this one before. It goes like this:
The lead singers get the good looking girls.
Guitarists get the loud ones.
Bassists get the quiet ones.
drummers get all the stupid ones.
Well there you are. Highly stereotypical of course.
The world would be a simpler place if everything was drumkey adjustable.

I will have to say the one of the most intersting experience I had was playing at a house party and several girls sat in front of the bass drum. They said afterwards that they like the vibration caused by it. :D
As they say some guitar players can give a good licking but every drummer can give a good banging

It's funny, cuz up until we added our new guitarist, I was the only one who had a girlfriend. So I guess the drummer got hooked up before anyone else! =)

thats definitely a hard question to answer... no doubt my vocalist pulls the most. but I do pretty well for myself.

theres a big difference I've noticed however on how much I pull at home versus on the road... the sweaty/stinky factor really comes in on the road. Plus the fact for a good while after the set we (drummers) are tearing down and loading out while others can hop off stage and start to mingle.

I don't know where you guys went to school but in most I say MOST of the time the singer gets most of the play! Unless he is ugly & even then they get play...A drummer that gets the most play would be a guy/girl that is the only beautiful one in the band! Even the Bass player gets more play in most bands...
just another drummer who wants to become better,learn more and play more than most..
if you can help please do!!

My bassist tried hooking me up with an out of town girl, and when told I was a drummer, she replied with "Ooh... really?"
