Does anyone have any favourite Musician Jokes? Here are a couple favourites to start things off:
Jazz tenor player Zoot Simms, a prodigious drinker, was leaving a club one evening, booze glass in hand. He stumbled, did a forward summersault and came back up standing upright. With the drink still in his hand.
Another time, Zoot was walking down a street when a beggar came up to him asking for a handout. Zoot reached in his pocket, gave the man some money and said, "Now don't do anything foolish like go out and spend it on food".

Bavarian conductor and composer Max Reger was a very outspoken man... his dry comments were feared by everyone in his time and provide material for anecdotes ever since.
Once, he had been conducting C.M. von Weber's Concert for Oboe, Bassoon and Orchestra before a very illustrious audience. After the concert, he was approached by a Princess of Meiningen who asked him "Maestro, are these bassoon sounds all produced by mouth?" - "I'll hope so." was his reply.
Another time, a concert of his had been severely handled by a newspaper critic. He sent the guy a postcard with this message: "Dear Sir, I am sitting in the smallest room of my apartment and have your critique before me. In a few moments, it'll be behind me. Sincerely, Max Reger."
Since then, many European musicians don't go to the bathroom, but are using the Max Reger Salon instead.

@shifty Well, we are piloting ourselves through a maze of music, and fighting the trumpet in the process, so there.
