Pardon the unapologetic music dorkery, but this is the sort of thing that the staff of End Hits obsesses over: How many male drummers stand while playing? We were reminded of this following the sad news about Bobby Z ("We're a band... right?"), and while we can list plenty of ladies that stand while drumming (We love you Moe Tucker, even if you are a Tea Party member), the list of male drummers without a stool is a little tougher.

Here is what we have so far:
Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats
Victor DeLorenzo of the Violent Femmes
Tali White of the Lucksmiths
Dave Hartman of Southern Culture on the Skids
Andy Sturmer of Jellyfish
The Scary Clown from Slipknot
Bobby Gillespie of the Jesus and Mary Chain (there is some debate about this one)

I know we are missing some. Help us out in the comments section.

Thanks to fellow dorks Rob and Matt for their help on this.
