I always thought it was special of that band to keep him on as drummer.


#6

Bet he still can’t play YYZ.


#7

What kind of post-modern world do I live in where a musician has to raise money for a robot arm to play shows

It’s like Twilight Zone, Black Mirror, a Arthur C Clarke story and a reddit writing prompt (If he has a number above his head for no discernible reason)


#8

Neil Peart stands alone.


#9

The best possible one. In all the others, a musician who loses a limb just has to find something else to do.


#10

Headline makes images in head.
Kickstarter… drums…

(sees himself out and runs for the hills)


#11

I mean. I’d put Mike Portnoy next to him. More or less.


#12

Oh certainly. I always assume people get this stuff but just in case, I was making an Archer reference, not an actual claim.


#13

Hah! I was kinda referring to that episode too, but I didn’t recall that particular line from it.
