A guy wanted to play bass in a band. The band told him, "Okay, but you will have to have 1/3
of your brain removed." So the guy went into surgery. When he woke up, the doctor said, "I'm
terribly sorry, but we made a mistake and accidentally removed 3/4's of your brain instead.
You're now a drummer".

  Two guys, Chuck and Duane, are on a safari in the jungle. In the distance can be heard native
drumming. Their guide, Bula, says, “Me don’t like sound of drumming, very bad.”
For hours the trio traipse through the jungle with the constant sound of the drums beginning
to get closer. The whole time Bula keeps saying, “Very bad, drumming very bad.”
Finally Chuck and Duane can’t take it any longer and scream in unison, “Why is the drumming
so bad?!” Bula says, “Substitute drummer!”
A couple hours later the drumming suddenly stops. Bula says, “Oh no, bad, very bad when
drums stop.” Chuck and Duane a of course freaked out by this and once again ask in unison,


 “Bass solo,” Bula replies.

A New York drummer by the name of Joe was out of work and desperately searching for a gig.
He went to the union office where they told him about plentiful jobs in Greece. "Greece?, the
drummer said. The union representative replied, "Hey, do you want to work or don't you?".
So the man packed his bags and headed off to Greece. He was to meet up with an old guy by
the name of Tarek at a small pub near the town of Perin. Upon his arrival, he located the pub
but Tarek was nowhere to be found.
He tracked Tarek down later by phone. He said he needed him for a last minute wedding gig
tonight at the Oasis hotel. There would be over 400 guests but unfortunately there wouldn't
be time for a rehearsal. Tarek said, "Just show up with your drums and be ready to play."
Well, the NY drummer wasn't that nervous. He had played hundreds of wedding gigs back in
New York and he was just happy to have some work.
Joe arrived at the hotel on time. The whole band was there except the bandleader, Tarek. He
set up his drums and patiently awaited for the old guy. Tarek finally arrived 5 minutes before
they were supposed to go on. He frantically set up his music stand and raised his arm to lead
the band. "Wait!, shouted the NY drummer, what are we playing?" Tarek looked at him calmly
(knowing he was a professional drummer) and stated, "Just relax and give me strong
backbeats on 7 and 13."
