Are drummers popular with the girls?

Price: Most of the chicks love drummers. I’ve heard that a million times. We do most of the work and we’re driving the song. We control stuff more than anyone. It’s a powerful feeling. Takes a lot more energy being a drummer. But that’s cool. With the girls, as long as you’re hitting something, it’s fine. They just like the way you look back there, banging around. Not many people play the drums. You can find guitarists all over town. People who don’t play the drums think it’s insanely interesting.

Bob: I don’t think so. We’re a shy lot. We’re modest, not when we play, but our demeanor. Rock stars, blues players get them. We’re always at a disadvantage because we’re always sitting down and everyone else is standing up around you. Drummers have our own little world. We are more discreet and don’t advertise our exploits. We drummers talk about drumming with each other because nobody else will talk to us about it. The other musicians have no idea what we’re doing. Funny thing is if the drummer isn’t good, it’s really hard for the band to be good.

Jake: Yes. There’s an old cliche that the drummer was the bad boy. I think that’s true. Of all the bands around here the drummer is usually the hard ass. I don’t know why. Maybe from swinging the stick. Drummers do get the ladies. It’s a dead heat between the lead vocalist and the drummer. It’s the aggression it takes being a drummer. It’s a very primal thing holding the sticks, beating the drums. It’s also a proven fact that drummers, with all the activity, arouses a woman’s sexual desire when you’re all sweaty. A lot of extra work being the drummer.
