Re: Karen Carpenter
she's amazing. she actually started out in marching drums but developed a passion for kit drumming. she really only wanted to drum but her vocals were too good (in fact they were fantastic and she is still regarded by many including myself to be one of the very top female vocalists ever). i saw her life story on the biography channel. she resented having to stand and sing in front of the kit while someone else played and always considered herself a drummer who could sing rather than as she was more commonly known: a singer who could drum.
