Which is the case with many drummers, male or female, after all. Of course I know
what you mean, but when we think about it - it always takes more than playing abilities.

Benny Greb was mentioned: Of course he can play (and I love his playing), but he's also
great at self-promotion, speaking, teaching, being exposed (with successful artists) etc.
It may not be the look thing as with Hannah Ford (and women in general), but it's not only
about the playing.

And by the way: While we're discussing here, I'm sure Hannah is either practicing, gigging,
or enjoying her free time - so we actually should give her props for making it, because I
know plenty beautiful women who aren't endorsed by drum companies and don't play
in front of many fans. So she must have done something right, right? :)
