The problem with saying that drummers have no musical ability is that though we have no moving melodic structure we do have "notes". these notes can and usually are written on a staff with the lowest line or E (treble clef) representing the bass drum and the middle line or B (treble clef) representing the snare the remaining lines and spaces are normally reserved for toms while the Ledger lines and spaces above F are used in conjunction with Xs and stars for cymbals.
drummers do indeed drive the band as the heart beat and "time machine" of the band. though often disrespected and unappreciated the drummer sits in the back with a smile on his face knowing that without him the band would be screwed.
P.s i also play guitar, piano, bass, and im a vocalist, so suck on that people who say we arent musicians
drummer:Ok do you realize that you were playing an ascending Phrygian mode during your solo while it would have made more melodic sense to play a descending Mixolidian
Guitarist: what the hell is a Ascending Phrygian mode
Drummer: exactly........im going to go hang with the bassist and talk about music theory while practicing rudiments
Guitarist: what are rudiments
Drummer: lol fag............

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.
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.
