    How do we compete with a robot drummer with perfect tempo and four arms?

    Seen it. At least as entertaining as Disney on Ice. Personally though, I think it would be more fun to actually have a robot drummer in a band of real people. And give him a prop beer. He can take sips and get looser and looser until he finally falls over, at which point you ask "is there a drummer in the house?" and you pull your real drummer out of the audience.

    Our jobs already became obsolete once. It was called "The 1980's"...

    I'll just reply to the title of the thread. That's been true since 1980.

    We're still drumming and trying to make a living at it hasn't changed much.

    That crap didn't show up until towards the end of that decade. Zep and Sabbath ruled the early part!

    This is so sad... 51765235_10161274215370262_7362323863813750784_n.jpg
