Patty Schemel - When I unfortunately went to see Hole at the Electric Banana in London ON they were so loud and shitty sounding I had to go outside. I snuck my beer out under my jacket and stood out front at the window and had a smoke. The band had their back to the window and Patty was sitting very close to it on her throne. That's when I realized she wasn't wearing any knickers.
...and she did it all at 1000 mph!Watched some Go-Gos videos recently--I've been meaning to watch the documentary but haven't yet--and while I remember thinking back in the day that Gina Schock was really tasteful, I'd never noticed before just how good her feel is, how perfect her fills are and, most of all, what a sledgehammer for a left she's got going on the snare. She's really bringing the power!
I don’t see “female” and “male” drummers. I just see “drummers”. This attitude of people being cool just because they’re a certain sex or a certain “whatever” has got to go as far as I’m concerned. It’s all about playing the music, and if they can do it, then I don’t care what they are. If they can’t play the music, I’m not around long enough to figure out what they are.
Me too. It's not necessarily people's comments, as most are concerned only with artistic aspects, it's the fact there's differentiation in the first place.I know a few female drummers who would be insulted by this thread.
