"We need the musicians on the stage. Oh, and the drummer too."
"What do you call someone that hangs around a band. A drummer."
"How do you know when a drummer is knocking on the door. The knock always slows down."

That's a few of many, many drummer jokes that float around rehearsal halls all over the world. But for those of you who don't appreciate a good drummer (and I do), just check out this list of the 30 richest drummers from celebritynetworth.com.

Oh, and before you crack any more drummer jokes, remember this all too true quote from drum legend Buddy Rich - "You can't have a great band without a great drummer!"
