She's making a career out of this because she works her ass off to market herself and she's a very marketable asset.

I'm sure Swexx doesn't mean to put down a fellow drummer, but, like many people, he wonders why Hannah gets so much attention when there are ladies like this..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lkHxA57GPk .... who don't get free sticks from Vater. I hear ya, Swexx, I hear ya.

Then again, if Hannah Ford inspires other young women (or men) to play drums, we certainly shouldn't complain.
Excactly what I was trying to say - though, I frased my opinions wrong, my comments turned out really harsch and the other fellows were right for correcting me.
