  • Female drummers. (Not read: females on drums)

    Saw an article on Cindy Blackman, then my girlfriend noted an old MD article on Janet Weiss (she likey the Sleater-Kinney for whatever reason). And now today Zildjian brought up Viola Smith.



    Got me wondering how many accomplished or unheard of-but skilled female drummers you know about.

      My favorite female drummer would definitely be Vera Figueiredo. Love Terri Lyne Carrington and Sheila Escovedo as well.

        I honestly don't get why people hate Meg White so much. Yes, she plays simple parts and yes she is self-taught, and yes she is successful. Yes, you can also say her success is only due to her collaboration with Jack White, but you could say similar things about Ringo Starr as well (though I suppose he does get a lot of flack as well). That doesn't change the fact that she was a successful musician.

            Best female drummer I've come across so far is Amy Farina from The Evens.







            She was awesome in Warmers too.

              Because nobody gives a crap about her drumming, for starters.

                      Samantha Mahoney (Hole, Motley Crue) -- not sure if she's still playing.

                      Terri Lynne Carrington

                      Cindy Blackman



                      It's such a male-dominated instrument - I wish we saw and heard more female drummers!
