this has been much of a debate among past gf's, i always call them on thier shit and say they're only with me because i'm a drummer, they deny, then i remind them how quick my hands are and they always get pwned.
Drummers rarely get the "immediate" praise and adoration we deserve, Then again the after show sweatyness does suck, i usually bring another shirt and some tag spray, not terrible effective for perspiration but it gets rid of the sweaty smell long enough to close a deal.

Hell yes drummers get chicks.... The ladies love that shit!... it all comes down to you bein a bad motherf*cker... Bring it on the stage.. Make a little eye contact with the hot girls in the audience.. ;) haha... Give em' a little wink.. Get em' ta' "run grab me a drink baby.." Start twirlin' your sticks while pullin their bra off with your teeth... They absolutely love it! Take my word... I had great sex with the hottest girl in the audience just last night! Right there on stage.. Talk about convenient! whoo!

It helps to know how to "bait the bitches" with your smooth personality and striking looks... One good pick up line that never fails goes somethin like this.... " hey there girl *pause and smile* "You're lookin hotter than an ovenroasted turkey breast in AFRICA.." *cheesy smile and snap point while shaking finger vigorously* (wait for her to laugh and give you that thumbs up approval) Then ask her if you can finish the rest of her drink, while she runs to grab another round.... "Doubles please ." *wink* and once again *snap point*...

Works everytime......

I gotta say I've "hooked up" with quite a few girls during my years of gigging. None of whom I'd bring home to Mother but this thread is "getting the girls" as in one (or two) night stands, and not girlfriends.

Of course drummers get the chicks, I think its just the loud/confident/sweaty animal thing that they like. Then again, being in a band automatically puts you a notch up the dating food chain anyway, its great!!!

I kinda look at it like high school. Think about a
football player. The main reason they pull so many chicks
is because people know them for what they can do. If you're
in a popular band and people know you, as an amazing
musician. Your going to pull chicks, regardless if you're the
drummer or the guitarist. It's all about statis.. Chicks love
a guy that is respected by his peers and in the spotlight.
I think Napolean Dynamite said it best " chicks dig guys
with skills ". Think about if you're at a party and someone
introduces you as the drummer from The Killers. Do
you think you're going to get female attention? Fuck Yeah!
The drummer from The Strokes is knee deep in Poon.
Besides whatever groupies, he's nailed Drew Barrymore and
Kristen Dunst. Plus, I don't even need to mention how many
gold stars Tommy Lee has...............
Fame and money = hot ass bitches who want to fuck you !!!
I think what throws people off is when they think, if they
join a band, they will automatically have chicks throwing
themselves at them. The truth is in the beginning you
still have to have game and play the field. Just like
you did before you played music. The good news is now
you have a leg up on most doucebags, because you're
in a band and you have something going on. Which is
something you can milk the hell out of. Girls like a guy
that has a life and is going somewhere!
"That's no Mystery."
The only downside I've seen is that sometimes,
if you're not in a well known band and
people say "oh he's a musician". You can be thrown
into the bum catagory. I've had this happen before.
If your not on the cover of Rolling Stone, they figure
you're most likely just some dumb kid that needs
to cut his hair and get a real job. Tragic, but it happens.

Depends on how ugly the rest of the guys in the band are.

*Note to chicks* Drummers know how to use their sticks.

Well a friend once told me....

When you are a LOCAL act, your guitarist will get all the girl action....
When you get FAMOUS the drummer gets all the girls......

I get A LOT of attention in the summer because I work out and go shirtless when we play beach gigs or at volleyball tournaments etc.... Women seem to enjoy it.....
(drummers are usually a little muscular in appearance... Well I am
anyway...)

It's ALL ABOUT YOUR APPEARANCE + STAGE PRESENCE.......
Drummers are the most "Taken for granted" part of the band. So in order to "attract" attention we have to do something, a cool shirt, well decorated kit, flahy stick twirling.....Stuff like that.........
Drummers are like money.....It's better IN THE POCKET!!!!!

i hijacked my boyfriends name to say yes, drummers totally get the girls. and i need to remind those 16 year old groupie girls that the boy who hits things with sticks is mine.
Use vintage drums with vented snares for the best of both worlds.

I agree on the shirt thing! Girls love it! Last night I had a girl say the no shirt things was a good move.... Then my guitarist tells me to "try and keep my shirt on next time"... think he's jealous because my stomach goes in and his out! Haha!? :P

I've never had a problem with the girls. If you kick ass & are a showman(since us drummers are in the back) you should be ok. Our other disadvantage is, we have a drum kit to pack up after a show so the singers get a head start on us.

I've never had any problem with getting the girls while in a band, but that's prolly attributed to the fact that I'm a VERY prominent drummer. I always have my kit lit up and really loud, and I clean up really quick after the set...
