Drummers are the hardest position in a band to fill, and keep filled. A good drummer is hard enough to find, but a good drummer who is also responsible and committed enough to be in a working band is rare.

Many good drummers are just flakes, or crazy, or un-reliable. Hey, they hit things all day, right? Conversely, many responsible drummers are just not good. There is something in the raw talent to play the drums that also makes a person a little crazy, more so than other musicians.

So, if you find a good drummer who is actually responsible, hold onto that guy!
My band is currently on our 5th drummer. The first one was a jerk, the second one got arrested, the third one went crazy, and the fourth one got married and had kids. This 5th one seems cool, though.

A drummer is THE most vital member of any band. A drummer keeps the pulse of the band, and basically makes all the non-musical guitarists look good so they can all say 'yeah, we're fucken ace' when they're actually, not. A drummer plays the drums (duh)and actually IS a musician, contrary to popular belief. Calling any musician a drummer is often taken as an insult, altho the drummer is in fact the cleverest musician
Guitarist: Hey guys, why are drummers always so stupid?
Drummer: So then 'Bob', what time dya need me 2 help ya wiv that work?
Guitarist: Err, shut up. I'm such a rocker. I'm like, hardcore. You don't even play a tuned instrument
Drummer: actually, i've passed my grade 5 theory of music, and my grade 6 piano. And, I can keep time
Bassist: Haha. Bob got ripped there. Bob's so stupid

those guys in the back that have what may be the hardest job but get little/no recognition along with the bassist while the guitarists and lead singers take all the credit
1) Drummers are People too
2) Buddy Rich, Tre Cool, and Tommy Aldridge should rule that world
3) Dude1: Who the fuck is the drummer for that band
Dude2: Who fucking cares

Musicians that get little to no recognition. They work just as hard as anyone else usually harder and get treated like dirt. Sure any one can hit drums and make noise but it takes years to be able to make drums talk a skill only some drummers will ever aquire.
person 1: that drummer is really good whats his name?
person 2: um...who gives a fuck

Someone who plays the drums. Male drummers are commonly looked upon negatively by most other males, and positively by females. Oddly enough, though, these females who are in to drummers rarely act on their compulsion. As for female drummers, they are too rarely in the public eye to get accurate statistics. Also, drummers are notorious for being in as little clothing as one can possibly get away with at any given time. Many believe this to be due to the extreme effort put forth by a good drummer, as they get quite hot and sweaty, also one possible reason for the female reaction, but this theory is discredited by the common case in which this anti-clothing behavior is carried over in to offstage life, such as public appearances and music videos. (see Tony Kanal, of No Doubt)There are many who would speculate wether this anti-clothing behavior carries over to females as well, but there is presently very little available data on the subject. For the most part, female drummers are known to behave like farely normal women, only recieving the personality traits of a drummer and little of the outward behavior. This is mostly speculation, though, for, as was said, there is little data on the subject.
Though there is little data on the subject, I'm sure Data would love to be all over some female drummers.
