    Default Reasons to Hug a Drummer?

    We all need a hug right? The 10th is National Hug a Drummer Day.
    But why in the world should anyone hug a drummer?

    hug-drummer.jpg

    'Give the Drummer Some' (hugs that is) on Thursday.

    Reasons to hug drummers:

    1. 1. We're soft like kittens.
    2. 2. Drummers need love too.
    3. 3. We keep the beat so your favorite band doesn't fall apart.
    4. 4. It might help us from feeling worthless as a human being, lol.
    5. 5. It's better than hugging a smelly guitar player.


    Can you think of any more? Drum Bum is giving away a prize package with cool drummer stuff for the best answer.

    Emmanuelle Caplette and/or Hannah Ford could hug me at any time. Doesn't have to be "Hug a drummer day", Oct 10th would be fine.

    I got hugs from my grandchildren on 10/10, but I don't think they thought of it as hugging a drummer. To them, I'm just G-pa.

    I played at my 50th high school reunion about a month ago, not exactly Oct. 10th, but the drummer definitely got more than his share of wonderfully fulfilling hugs.

    Congratulations Susan Scott from Erving, MA. Here was Susan's entry:

    My favorite drummer in all the world is my son, Dan. When Dan was a young boy he had multiple social and focusing problems which lead to home and school issues.His father and I had him tested and the psychologist said he was on the autistic spectrum. Long story short...it was recommended he try learning an instrument. As it turns out, drumming was his thing. Dan was self taught while he was young and then as he grew older and had music in school he became very good with the drums. It somehow saved him from a life of misery and maybe even a life of crime. He is always sought after to play in bands and record albums. The best thing about Dan, is that he is very humble and he has turned into a wonderful adult, husband, and father. I feel that learning how to play the drums was a huge boost to his self esteem and gave him confidence which in turn helped him to do well at other things and become a productive human being.

    I love to hug my wonderful son, Dan the Drummer!

    Best,
    Susan
    Here were some of the entries:

    sometimes it is lonely at the back of the stage behind a shield or in an enclosure.

    on the outside we are very loud, but deep inside we are kinda shy

    it takes us the longest time to set up and tear down

    we are always being told to tone it down

    when we lose a stick, there is no one there to give us another

    Hug me or I'll Stick it to you!

    Hug a drummer we won't play with your heart strings.
    (1) In memoriam Ginger Baker (and all of the other influential drummers we have lost)
    (2) We need more affection than the lead singer or lead guitarist (also give the bass player a hug)
    (3) It's a natural prelude to "Kiss a Drummer" day later in the year
    (4) If you're an exceptional hugger, we'll emblazon your name on our bass drum
    (5) We hug back!

    Cheers,
    Todd
    More entries for our National Hug a Drummer Day contest:

    Hug a drummer because drummers are the heart of the band!

    Reason #6. Latin drummers - timbaleros --- are seeeexxxxxyy!

    Who doesn't want to hug a drummer? They have Great rhythm!

    Even a hug with the drummer is on the beat, so hou can feel the ritme!!

    We use our arms more than the rest of the band so we are naturally better huggers!

    Cause we like to think that we are not only on time, but adorable!

    Drummers sit on thrones, so they must be kings!
    Drummers do it with rhythm!


    A drummer is always wanting to rock it out and jack it up and play a song the way his band mates and the crowd loves it to be played.. it’s the back bone
    The back beat. Good drummers will give a show for ya too.
    So hug a sweaty drummer.
    I bet ya he was smelling good when he started...



    Hug a drummer because if you don't, someone else will.��
    Our heartbeat which keeps a steady pulse might just skip a beat. And maybe yours will to. And that is a wonderful thing.

    The Drummer who needs a hug,


    Hug A Drummer To Feel The Groove!


    The drummer is the only one in the band who knows how to count to “1 - 2 - 3 - 4!” so the song can get started.
    Otherwise ..... NUTHIN’!


    Because he’ll stroke you back. Al Iannaci

    I spent 3 years retreating from my wife. Probably not the same thing.
