Caroline Corr
Now I know from the off that this thread wont get much traffic but I searched for her on the site and didnt get one single reference. We dont have that many women and I felt compelled to get her name mentioned somewhere on this site.

My wife dug out an old album of the Corrs last night that I probably hadnt listened to in 10 years.

I was surprised when I realized what a fantastically steady and dependable drummer she is. Always plays for the music- never ever overplays,

She plays the piano, bodhran and has a beautiful singing voice as well as gorgeous looks.

Many drummer's starting out (and quite a few with plenty of years on them) should take a leaf out of her drumbook instead of focusing on the usual guys and all their chops.

I'd take a hard hitting right on the money steady stunning female drummer over any flash in the pan blast beat overplaying chops monster anyday.

Just wanted to share some love for Caroline

Re: Caroline Corr
Never got into her at all. I dont like the music she plays. Never a fan of the Corrs.

Re: Caroline Corr
If you watch any videos of her playing you can't help but notice that she moves in a really inefficient way, playing from the elbows etc.

The recorded performances will have had the Pro Tools treatment so I can't get too enthused about that.

It's a shame since I think strong female drummers are needed. I have no hesitation in adding an arguably sexist remark that she's welcome to free lessons from me anytime... she's very cute!

Re: Caroline Corr
an old post, but I find myself coming back to the band occasionally; i saw them in Sydney twice on the same tour, great shows; yes, Caroline's playing can be limited but her playing is straight ahead, no nonense; sure more use of rudiments and ride cymbal wouldn't go astray but her drumming works with the band. All said and done you can't knock talent, beauty and success! But you know one of the best things about her playing its that its original, she doesn't try to copy or style her playing on anybody like just about 90% of drummers do, I find that very refreshing and reading/watching interviews with her about her drumming she is totally unpretentious about her playing.
