Re: Girl drummers
I think the bigger issue here are drummers who use things other than their skill. There are plenty of guys on youtube who are glammed out wearing sunglasses indoors, with expensive drums, high quality audio/video production, and are just mediocre at best. Meanwhile they have tons of views. I don't think anyone should get upset about it. I think any working musician wants to put themselves out there and if something works, you can't really fault them.
With that said, Cindy Blackman is one of my all time favorite drummers, and it had nothing to do with her gender.
