Karen Carpenter (1950-1983)

“Karen’s drumming was praised
by fellow drummers Hal Blaine, Cubby O’Brien, Buddy Rich and
Modern Drummer
magazine.
Many people are unaware that Karen had an impeccable ability to
play the drums, in part because the public wanted a singing Karen
Carpenter, rather than a drumming Karen Carpenter. However, according
to Richard Carpenter in an interview, Karen always considered herself
a “drummer who sang.”

Carpenter first started playing the
drum set in 1964. She was always enthusiastic about the drums, and
taught herself how to play complicated drum lines with “exotic
time signatures” (quoting Richard Carpenter from the Close to
You
documentary).”
