Re: Meg White
Thanks Karl and well said, Boomstick.
What I find interesting is that Meg's playing works. In the old days I would have scoffed at her too and, really, you wouldn't think that playing so simply could possibly sound right. Yet it does because her kit sounds great. The way drums struck is important in sound production, and this is an aspect of Meg's playing that's often not acknowledged.
I'm also guessing that if she played more normally the listener might start feeling the lack of a bassist. You have to approach things differently in duos.
