A Really Bad Note

by Kelly Randall posted Aug 5 2013 10:32AM

Lots of folks make jokes about musicians not being smart.  You’ve heard drummer jokes, right?

 

How do you tell if the stage is level?

The drummer is drooling from both sides of his mouth.

How can you tell a drummer's at the door?

The knocking speeds up.

 

What's the last thing a drummer says in a band?

"Hey, how about we try one of my songs?"

 

Ok.  Not always fair as a lot of musicians are very smart, as well as great business people.  And that includes drummers.  Bruce Springsteen comes to mind as a super-smart musician. In fact, Bruce likes to joke about his spare time when he watches TV and his mind starts drifting to adding up the commercial endorsements he's turned down over the course of his career. Most likely, a startling amount of money.

 

This week’s winner for dumbest band in the world has to be the Bloodhound Gang.  They were playing in the Ukraine this past week when the bassist shoves a Russian flag down his pants and pulls it out the back of his pants.  And he had the gall to tell the audience not to tell Putin.  Now,  the lead singer objected right at that moment, saying he didn’t agree with what just happened. But it was too late.  The word was out that a rock band had desecrated the Russian flag. Pretty soon the upcoming appearance at a weekend rock festival was cancelled. Then, they were deported and had to head right to the airport.

 

It gets worse.

 

At the airport lounge, Russian nationalists tracked them down and tried to smother one of the band members with an American flag.  The Bloodhound Gang was lucky to get out of Russia unhurt.

 

Think the Bloodhound Gang is looking for a new bass player this week?

 

It’s very simple. If you are invited to play in a foreign country, stay away from the host nation’s flag. And if invited to play in Russia, definitely leave the Russian flag out of your stage act, unless you plan to bunk down for a long while with Edward Snowden.

 

Want a few more drummer jokes?  I love drummers, but ok, here goes:

 

What do you call a drummer with half a brain?

Gifted.

 

What does a drummer use for contraception?

His personality.

 

What do you say to a drummer in a three-piece suit?

"Will the defendant please rise?"

 

"Hey buddy, how late does the band play?"

  "Oh, about half a beat behind the drummer."

 

Ouch.
