Swedish study: drummers more intelligent

Filed under: Randomness — disciplepete @ 12:12 pm

HAHAH WOW. This flies in the face of all the drummer jokes we non-drumming musicians love. Ok, well I actually play drums too and it was my first instrument, but it’s not my primary instrument so I am down to rag on the drummers. The stereotype of the drummer is that of an incompetent idiot. This “drummers-are-intelligent” news is like 9/11 to the musician community! The Local:

People with a knack for holding a steady beat score higher on intelligence tests, a new study has shown.

Researchers say the study suggests a biological basis for intelligence related to the regularity of nerve cell activity in the brain. (article)

Hmm…well the stereotype of drummers is that they can barely hold a steady beat, so I guess the jokes can live on. My favorite: Q: What do you call someone who hangs out with musicians? A: A drummer! (Drummers out there, don’t be offended, I got love for all musicians, it’s all in jest.)






  1. DAMN.

    <– can’t hold a beat to save her LIFE.
