Odds are, the Robbie Robertson Turnpike will come in and take credit for traffic moving faster.

How do you know it's a drummer at your door?

Because he keeps knocking faster and faster, and no matter how many times you tell him, he refuses to come in on time.

This reminds me of the night we drove down ol' Dixie.

Tangentially related joke: You know why sound guys never lift anything? They only know how to count to 2.

The Rick Allen Expressway will be a one-lane highway.

And of course who could forget this classic: How can you tell if the stage is level?  The drummer is drooling out of both sides of his mouth.

The Ringo Starr High Way is decent enough, but doesn't get the credit it deserves.

The Neil Pert Expressway has long boring stretches that nobody really cares about.

The John Bonham Freeway winds all over the place, so things take twice as long, but the ride is amazing.

The Charlie Watts Parkway is technically adequate and will always get you where you want to go.

The Lars Ulrich Expressway is actually a roundabout

How many drummers does it take to change a light bulb?

Five -- one to hold the bulb, and four to drink until the room spins.

Why was the drummer homeless?

His girlfriend broke up with him.

How do you get a drummer off your front porch?

Pay him for the pizza.

Dammit, I think I told that one wrong.

Told ya I was a drummer!

And one for the drummers:

How many lead singers does it take to change a light bulb?

One. He just holds the bulb as the rest of the world revolves around him.

Did you hear about the drummer that locked his keys in the car?

It took two hours to rescue the bass player from the back seat.

What do you call a guy who likes to hang out with musicians?

A drummer.

None - there are machines that do that now.

How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?
Just ask the Keyboard player to do it with his left hand.

Welp, time to watch the Last Waltz again.  Maybe Shooter, too.

Helm's book, This Wheel's on Fire, is a fantastic read. Recommended without reservation to any fan of American music.

Thanks for sharing, sent it to my drummer brother. Hopefully he is still on his meds and will be able to read it

Wonder what the Ginger Baker road is like?

It was big when it was first built, but nobody remembers where it is now.

There is a single occupancy lane that appears 2/3 of the way along the road and lasts for 10 seconds?

It's fashionable for people to say they hate driving on Phil Collins Avenue because it's full of minivans, but if you follow it out into the countryside far enough it connects with the Bruford Roundabout and you can make pretty good time out there. 13/16 time, but who's complaining?

It's hell on your suspension, but at least it doesn't go off a cliff like the Keith Moon Service Road does.

You think you're cruising along fine, and then it breaks your nose.

And I gotta say, Levon was a rock-solid drummer, who was able to keep time while he sang.  Watch the Classic Album DVD on The Band's brown album and he shows off his technique.

If you want a road where you go faster the further along you go, look no further than Stewart Copeland Avenue.

The Meg White Memorial Parkway is just the same group of trees over and over and over.
