Default Re: Karen Carpenter, dominating woman drummer.

Karen loved playing the drums even more than singing. When The Carpenters became really mainstream, they wanted her to come out from the kit, drummer turned Front person. she didn't want to leave her beloved drums behind. She wanted to be behind the drums. But, of course, the need for the spotlight won out and she did. I should add that part of the problem of coming out from the set was also because she had body image issues, that caused her anorexia and ultimately her death.

Great video BTW
