    Granted, there are standouts & exceptions to the rule such as Neil Peart & Carl Palmer ... But, for the most part, the average Joe could learn how to play efficiently within two weeks ...


    most drummers I've met are generally a step or two behind the rest of society, intellectually...

    Neil Peart is intelligent but is far from a great drummer. Zero feel and stuff

    If you ever choose to take up an instrument, drums would suit you wonderfully.

    What's the difference between a large pizza and a drummer?
    The pizza can feed a family of four.
