Science Shows How Drummers’ Brains Are Actually Different From Everybody Elses’

By Jordan Taylor Sloan  

In the music world, drummer jokes are always popular. Most of them have the same punchline: Drummers are idiots. Take, for example, the following: “How do you tell if the stage is level? The drummer is drooling from both sides of his mouth.”

Whether it’s being ruthlessly mocked for their idiocy, repeatedly killed in This Is Spinal Tap or just lusted after less often than the lead guitarist (whom we’ve already studied), drummers walk a tough road. But it turns out science holds them in really high regard: They have a rare, innate ability to problem-solve and change those around them.

Everything you have done in life to this point is preparation for your next step. So take it.

Keith to Keith: Everything you have done in life to this point is preparation for your next step. So take it.

I’m stepping out and moving forward. It doesn’t matter how hard it looks to anyone else; it is my step, my purpose, my life.

I have fears, yet I am not afraid.
I have vulnerabilities, yet I am not weak.
My peace was shattered, yet I am unbroken.

My eyes are open, my strengths are intact, my heart is clear. I am focused on what will be gained, not what has been lost. I choose to define myself as what I am, not what I am not. As I walk on the edge I will look up at the sky, not down where I might fall.

And though the journey is mine, I am mindful and thankful of the many helping hands I encounter along the way–the expected and the unexpected–that are willing to hold my burdens for me when I need to catch my breath. None of us do this thing called life all by ourselves, and even when it feels like I am walking by myself, I know I am never alone. Who knew a deathblow could make me feel so alive?

I am ready; hup-two-three-four; here I go, out the door…..

The future is unclear, yet I am undaunted.

I will be looking for you along the way. Always with a hug, and a hand if you need one, my friends.

Peace, Baby!

-Keith
