Default Re: Karen Carpenter, dominating woman drummer.

Karen started-out as a non-singing drummer.

From Wikipedia:

In late 1965, Wes Jacobs, Richard Carpenter and sister Karen formed the Richard Carpenter Trio, an instrumental jazz group. The trio won the Hollywood Bowl Battle of the Bands on June 24, 1966.

Despite Karen being a fantastic drummer, the legendary Hal Blaine played drums on some of the Carpenters' records, including one of the Carpenter's biggest hits, "Close to You" - (06/27/70).
