Rfduck took a moment from sweating out finishing all he has to complete for this semester to say, “Hi again, everyone. Today is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day, so I hereby proclaim today as Drummer Day!”

1. Name some of your favorite drummers. Or name A drummer if you don't have any favorites.
Buddy Rich, Ginger Baker, Ringo Starr.
2. What song contains your favorite drum performance?
Buddy Rich's 1978 album Buddy Rich Plays and Plays and Plays has the Mickey Mouse Mambo on it. How bizarre!
3. Do you prefer the drummer to simply keep a beat, or do you like him or her to show off a bit?
If I'm in the mood, I like drummers who know how to strut their stuff. However, if it's “all about the music”, I love a drummer who knows how to make his contribution a seamless part of the whole.
4. If you were a drummer, how would you personalize your drum kit? I'd have typani's and congas and bohdrains and top hats and bass snares and any other percussive instrument I could think of in reserve for just the right tune.

The rules are, there are no rules!!! All you need to do is copy and paste the above questions into your blog and add your responses. After you've finished, return here and leave us a comment so we'll know you've Mamboed. Be sure your Mambo is linked back to http://bdinsanity.blogdrive.com so others can dance too.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. If one of the questions doesn't inspire you then simply "pass" it. Just use your imagination and dance like crazy!

If you don't have a blog or you're an exhibitionist *woo hoo* feel free to Mambo right here in our comments section. There's absolutely no pressure ... although it's called the Monday Music Mambo you can Mambo on any day.

Until next time, this is your music-lovin' Mememeister saying have a good Monday and a good Mambo!
