Re: Girl drummers
On another note - there was an annoying story about a (supposed) musician using tactics unrelated to music to promote one's self during a competition. It was a well told story, but clearly the party involved would be embarrassed to read it.
I was going to respond to it, only to notice it has been removed.
My comments would have addressed the point that I believe because she was a female, with a moderate display of ability, someone saw this as a cash cow, invested money in the entourage, and hoped to reap the benefits. She was nothing more than marionette. It is a shame really.
To add the controversy, and this discussion - I believe this situation is a direct result of the topic we are discussing.
