Looks like it worked. He snared some gas for himself.

If it was the drum solo from In a Gadda Da Vida, I can definitely see getting gas from it

If you have the kit with you, why not?

/the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida drum solo convinced me to buy my first kit

I feel the need to provide some sort of a rhythmic acknowledgement to your clever pun.

Where is the hero tag? Life handed him lemons and he painted that shiat gold.

Having once run out of gas on 495 around DC, This is probably more cost-effective than making people call AAA.

In 97 I was on my way back from the Virginia Renaissance Faire with some friends when I busted the timing belt on my Acura on I-95 North just outside of Quantico. AAA said "2 hours or so" and my friends decided to hang out with me. Well, boys will be boys, and we were bored, and it didn't take long for roadside boredom to turn into "roadside stage fight direction training and entertainment with swords"

Didn't take too long before one of Virginia's finest showed up and (I swear this is true) after a quick debriefing, and inspecting our weapons, he JOINED IN. Dude was good too! (apparently he had done more than a bit of fencing, and wasn't bad with heavier weapons either... and yes, he took off his gun and his hat... apparently that means something special) He moved his car behind our group of vehicles, turned on his lights, and hung out with us for almost two hours.

I can only imagine what it looked like... cop with sword squaring off with guys in kilts with swords... 50 feet from one of the busiest sections of highway in North America, but man it was fun, and made a long, hot, and otherwise annoying wait for AAA one of the best experiences I can remember.

I support roadside drumming, but if it was me, I'd set up about 100 feet past my car instead of right behind it to make it less likely i'd get splattered between two cars.

I've heard of the Drum Solo of Life, but not the Drum Solo of Roadside Assistance. Way to go, guy; Neal would be proud.

FTFA: "The drummer was not cited and continued on his way"

So I guess you could say he beat the rap?

Or perhaps his release was only cymballic?

Regardless, it was certainly a good way to drum up some publicity.

Drummer with no girlfriend?

Also, if you see a drummer, flash him.
 
2013-05-22 06:59:40 AM
Well...  He had the time...  I kinda can't believe he went through the trouble of setting up the entire kit.

It's also cool that the cops didn't harass him.

Back in '95, I was driving through Denver when my transmission went out. We didn't have our drums with us, but we made do with our practice pads and sticks on the side of I-25 until the tow truck showed up.

/Would have been better with actual drums.
 
2013-05-22 11:02:27 AM
lookahere.

Now when i count to 4 I want everybody to lay out and let the drummer go.
And when I count to 4 I want everybody to come back in.

Q: What do you say to a drummer in a suit?
A: "Will the defendant please rise?"

How do you know a drummer is at your door?

The knocking keeps speeding up and he doesn't know when to come in.
