Yes and yes!

My personal favourite 'drummer-ism' was halfway through a sound check getting a request from the front man on behalf of the drummer who was wondering if I had any spare 5B nylon-tipped sticks he could borrow, because he'd just broken one and didn't have any spares.

When I asked if he was serious, there was a brief pause before, "erm, well I guess wood tips would be ok if you don't have nylon ones...". I had to double check to make sure that I hadn't accidentally daubed 'Sound Control - Hi! My name is: Matt' onto my shirt.

Unbelievable.
