Sometimes you get women drummers! :gasp:


Jimmy Somerville had one. (seen mostly from 2:22)




Sheargal Farkey had TWO at the same time! :gasp: (seen from 0:23)

This is at once both breathtakingly awesome and charmingly naff.

A bit like the HotW itself. :happy:

Leader of the pack get on that track
Swing your back and don’t look back
Captain attending, too much to handle
Too hot, the pan goes pop
Blow your trumpet like you do
I put on my marchin’ boots

I don't wish to sound like a total sexist pig*,



but I don't think a lady with legs like that should wear shorts like that.
:eek:


*I don't want to, but as you can see, I forced myself admirably.

Do you like women? Do you like drums? Do you like women on drums? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the launch of Tom Tom Magazine comes as good news. Founded in New York by Mindy Abovitz, the new magazine dedicated to female drummers heeded the advice to "Go West, young woman" for its fifth issue, and turned to Swahili Blonde mastermind Nicole Turley's expertise on L.A.'s leading ladies of percussion.

So, what defines a great female drummer for Turley? "Women have this innate quality where it's in their nature to lay back and listen to what's going on around them," she says, "paying attention openly, finding a proper space for everything to blend together. You find this in the best female drummers and musicians in general. Everyone's different, of course, but men get tunnel vision with things that they do. That's one thing I notice with women in music. More women are becoming multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, exploring all avenues of music. It makes sense. It's within a woman's nature to take in everything about her environment."

Brian Ferry had a female drummer at Glastonbury last night.

Arcade Fire had a female drummer for part of the time too.
