The proven theory that the drummer is always the first one to die no matter the condition of the band or its members. This is parodied in the 1984 film, "This is Spinal Tap", in the which one of their drummers simply "exploded" on stage Well known drummers that have succumbed to this include Keith Moon of The Who,John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, and The Rev of Avenged Sevenfold
"Dude, another fucking drummer just died, what the hell do you blame this on?"
