Someone who can kick ass behind a drum set and stir up excitement in an audience. A drummer can rock you or soothe you, depending on the song. A gentle song needs a drummer that can create a happy flow. Often real drummers make people want to jump up and dance. Drummers play a full set of rock drums: at least one snare, at least 2 tom toms and one or 2 floor toms, 3 or more cymbals, plus a high-hat and a bass drum. More of any can be added any time. Chimes, gongs, orchestral bells and cowbells have also seen some pretty hard-hitting from drummers. There are some drummers that could be called drummers that play other styles of music than rap and rock, but they tend to be rare. Like, is Charlie Watts really a drummer when he plays jazz – give me a break.

Altho drummers don't always practice, they remain true to a genuine spirit of hard-hitting cooperation with other members of their bands, driving them ahead. They are also influenced by the music coming from other instruments and incorporate it into the overall experience, hence helping to shape the music. This is why other members of the band should always play well, since they are influencing the drummer.

Drummers have the Power of Rock 'n' Roll at their command.
We went to see Trail of Death (or some new band in town) and the drummer kicked ass!

A drummer is someone who gets a lot of stereotypes. People assume that Drummers are dumb people with no musical talent. When in reality, drums are the backbone of most music. Drummers keep time and keep the beat going. Drummers also do have a lot of musical talent. It takes a lot of coordination to be a good drummer. They also have to be able to feel the music. And yes I am a drummer :-P
Dumbass: haha you're just a stupid drummer with no talent.
Drummer: Oh yeah you try playing the drums
Dumbass: Ahh crap i can't do it. Well you're still dumb.
Drummer: Which is why you're failing more classes than me right?

Comes from the musical instument (Drums) played by the member of a band, usually sits at the back of the stage. Without this godlike creature there would be no rythem to the music and havoc would incurr.

Plays with the precise action that only a master craftsman can obtain. Thats right, with sticks. Only people with the right personality combination can become a drummer. That person blessed will also probably have to owm some sort of 'kit' to play with. And although guitarists are cool, there're one-hundred a penny. Sadly.
Dom Howard is drummer. He's lovely.

A drummer is a person who belongs in a band, and along with the bassist, tends to be unappreciated. As the prime majority of the "band curse" the drummer is ususally the first member of a band to leave or be kicked out. Usually responsible for keeping beat and band in line. Without a drummer, the band is lost.
Guitarist: I'm so cool Ive got straigt F's and I don't know how to read my music, but i'm the best known and the richest.
Singer: I'm not so cool I can read music but dont play and insturment, I am pretyer than the guitarist.
Bassist: No one knows my name but me and the drummer are best freinds and the band depends on us to keep them on the right line.
Drummer: Me and the bassist pay the bills, find the gigs, and are never given any credit for being in the band.

Someone who plays drums well. They are as essential to rock music as guitarists if not more. Drummers, along with Bass players, rarely get as much attention as singers and lead guitar players.
Mike Portnoy is an amazing drummer.
