According to a collection of studies, drummers are super smart, due to a variety of factors relating to being in the rhythm section.
The news comes courtesy of Polymic, who have compiled a series of reports from Oxford and Harvard universities to name a few. What they found was that that dude at the back of the band isn't the head scratcher that you might think he is, in fact he is more likely to be the smartest of them all.
For example, researchers at Stockholm's Karolinska Institutet found that drummers who kept a tighter rhythm also scored better on a 60-question intelligence test. This is a reflection of better problem solving skills, which creates a positive impact on those around them.
