QFT.

I know it's been touched on before in this thread, but it's worth highlighting the point again. If I can only draw stick figures......am I a great artist because of my minimalism or just severly limited?

I wouldn't call her bad either. I've heard far worse than Meg. She's achieved much with limited ability......more power to her. I admire anyone who gets up and gets on with it. She's never claimed to be anything she's not and what she does is fine by me.

But I've gotta agree with Swiss.....her playing is really nothing to write home about. "Great", it just ain't IMHO. She's just another drummer that I'm more than happy to listen to, but will never aspire to.
