As Dr. Livingstone was exploring, he came upon a village of natives tucked away deep in the jungle. He was welcomed and a feast was prepared.
As they all sat to eat the, native drummers began to play a constant beat.
The meal progressed and the drums kept going.
As dinner ended and he was shown to his thatched hut to rest, he asked his guide the meaning of the drums. His guide responded "Drums are good, drums keep going."
That night he had little rest.
As his visit continued the drums kept playing. After a couple of days he asked again and was told "Drums are good, drums keep going."
After several nights of poor sleep he began to be desperate. He frantically asked about the drums again.
"Drums are good, drums keep going" was the reply.
Near to snapping he asked "WHY, what will happen when the drums stop!?!?"
The native guide, looking fearful, replied "bass guitar solo".
