      Nope, just look at Michael Render and you can see how serious it can get

          LOL I think this about myself everytime I play. I think I'm just over conscious because no one's ever made fun of me... yet. LOL

            I'm not sure if it ever goes way but my wife laughs at me every time I play the drums. She says I look like a constipated retard. I am so afraid to see my face in the mirror. I sure my facial expression will chance as I get past the learning phase and get better.

                    Crimsonking, were you given an award around here? Did you get the fabled golden seatless drum throne?

                      is that concentration or constipation?

                        Neither. It's a severe case of syncopation!

                          LOL, is it just a raised left eyebrow beyond your normal "not drumming" face?

                          i have a guitar face as well but it's not as good as my drum face. today, while trying to play the hats off beat to the kick i had a look of stan laurel apparently.

                            Heh, I thought I looked pretty rock and roll when I played until years ago someone said "you're a great drummer, but you look as if you're worrying about whether you left the oven on when you're playing". I saw some video footage of me playing the other day for the first time and they were right!

                              Back when I started drumming I used to play with a pair of earmuffs on (after I lost about 1/3 of my hearing ) that were ridiculously tight. So tight that I used to have to stick my jaw out while I was wearing them just to be comfortable. It's since become part of my technique and even after not using the stupid things for a decade- I still play for about 30secs and then I turn into the gorilla
                              "Today young men on acid realised that all matter is purely energy condensed to a slow vibration; That we are all of one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively; There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves.. Here's Tom with the weather"...
