What's got three legs and a C U (N)ext (T)uesday???

A drum stool!!!!!

Sorry I love that joke! Failed guitarist here! Lots of failed cover bands! People get fed up and quit and they all fall apart, that sort of thing.

I'm lucky enough not to have any neighbours so some days I plug the amp in and stand out on the patio, turn it up to ten, and shred like I'm at Wembley!!!!

Drew,ive heard them all before,Drummers not proper musos,but without us thumping the tubs you aint got a band.Yeah ive been in that situ myself all get together for a jam,musically doesnt work,socially doesnt work or worse still it does work and after a month of rehearsals somebody leaves the band.
 
The drummer is always the butt of any band joke, it's always been that way and always will. I'll bet Rush don't tell drummer jokes to Neil Peart, or Dream Theater to Mike Portnoy etc etc
 
I played bass with that band mate. You can just make me out in the background. The stage area was tiny in that place so I couldn't jump about like I used to
I've got one acoustic song up there, one day I'll get round to posting some more up

Are you gigging MM
I did a bit of rhythm backing a couple of years ago, now I just tend to noodle on my own.
Occasionally I take over when a band is on a break and do a few numbers.
Great fun though.
