Mozart:
How hard is it to play the timpani? I would love my life if my job was being a timpanist. Almost no one would know what the hell that was! Also what do musicians get paid on average?

I would imagine that you need years of training, for it is a far more difficult instrument than the violin, or the piano.

why don't you take an easier instrument, say, the cowbell?

Cowbells don't cool your friends the same way an instrument like this does.
