I'm often disagreeing because I've been a professional musician all my adult life, and a drummer too. I find myself most often disagreeing with hobbyists and the vaguely interested who as a collective seem to think being in a band is 'easy', writing a hit song is 'easy', making lots of money as a musician while mostly partying is 'easy'.
If so many, with so little real experience, but so much to say, would stop posting these myths, I;'d stop disagreeing with them.
Postscript: drumming as a we know it in popular music, not as parroted by soccer moms - is NOT easy.
