Good Lord! I am so relieved. When I saw the heading for this thread, I thought it said "Drummer feces"

I'm very relieved.

I used to make some crazy looking faces. Recently people tell me that I look too serious or that I look like I'm concentrating too hard...unless it's a really heavy part that's easy to play, then everyone stops and asks if I'm pissed off at anyone and then they beg me to never make that angry looking of a face ever again.
I get into my breakdowns man, what can I say.

I think that concentrating too hard may lead to "drummer feces" :D

I think every one does...it's pretty much unavoidable. Drummers that look too straight faced, I believed aren't being challenged enough.

If you are concentrating on your face, your playing may lose something. The only exceptions I know of were the drummer for Loverboy, who looked like he was kicked in the back every time he hit a drum, and the original guy from White Zombie, he looked real awkward, but sounded just great!
I would say don't worry about it, or practice better faces, smile as if you just hit the lottery,or stoneface like Neil Peart, or oh, hey by the way, like Bun E. Carlos, just play.

The most interesting drummer faces ever are the ones that Dave Grohl makes, watch some of his videos with Queens Of The Stone Age or soem of his solos, it's priceless.

Neil Peart has one of my favorite expressions of "I'm really concentrating on this ride pattern." He's always got the monk-like concentration stare going on like a bomb could go off and he wouldn't notice, I sometimes wonder if he even knows that music is being played or just hears a count-off and plays his drum part without hearig the rest of the band.
