Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??
Yes drums and cymbals are musical instruments da cheese walks. Muisc mainly consists of two things, melody and rhythm. The rhythm part is were the drums come in. Ever see a guitarist tapping his or her foot. They are counting out the beat or rhythm. The drums may not be a melocic insturment like a guitar or trumpet but they are still instruments. BTW I think roto toms and octos are pretty melodic.
I have only seen Meg in the Strips so I don't really know if she can play any other styles or not. The Stripes are a very simple band that doesn't require complicated or difficult drumming. She is perfect for that type of music. Could all of us play like that? yea probably but most of us would not look as good with long black hair.
