Me too! And I get jaw ache from that! i think it's because the gap it creates alows more sound to sneak in! I hate it!

As for faces... i have a feeling it's one of the unfortunate things about drumming....

usually when i play gigs ppl tell me that i look like im asleep...
but when im into some parts of the songs i like i go crazy and headband a bit, exaggerate my arm movements etc...
a face i like doing is when i hit the china - i kinda show my teeth like a lion (like the sound of the cymbal hearts my ears or somethin...)

back when i was younger i used to have a face for every drum i hit... so fun :)
that of course was my way of undoing any dumb looking faces while playing... i always hated looking like a mongoloid when playing :)
 
I don't do it too often, but sometimes I'll pull a lot of Matt Sorum expressions...When I bare my teeth and kind of chomp down in a rigid motion like I'm of those coin-eating robots.

Pretty dopey.

One of my favorite quotes from a band I played with a few years ago. "It's like he has a different face for every riff!"

If you're concerned about what your face looks like while you're playing, you aren't focused on your playing and aren't going to be able to feel it.

But it's then when you are so very focused on your drumming that you forget everything around and get this concentrated, far-far-away facial expression. And then you're too occupied noticing your stupid expression :)

concentrating on a part really hard i look extremely stoned. but if im getting into it i clench my teath and try to look angry for the msot part. which is wioerd because i think im an extremely likable guy! but i do play metal so i guess that explains it.
