Robert Bluman wrote:Yes, I read your post. Did you read the title of your thread? Female Drummers. We're talking about them. You said you started this because there are less female drummers than male drummers. That doesn't make sense. A drummer is a drummer, whether they are black, white, gay, straight, asian, american, european, MALE OR FEMALE. Are you starting a Gay drummers thread next? There are not that many. By your logic, that would make sense. I don't agree with that.
Someone mentioned Tal W. on bass. Do you really think if Tal can play more bass Will Lee, Jimmy Haslip, or a number of male bassists that would have loved to be on tour with Herbie Hancock or Jeff Beck? If she were a man, we wouldn't know her name. Let's even the playing field. Stop treating women musicians like they're a special breed. They're equal to men, and should have the same standard.
Why not mix in this discussion.....
Do you read your own posts? What amazes is you that totally contradict yourself. Not just your latter message, but basically all post were you mix in a discussion. Some examples with respect to your latter post:
- Let me tell you a secret: there ARE less female drummers than male drummers. It's a fact, and a fact makes sense. It doesn't make sense to say that it (ie. a fact) doesn't make sense.....
- if a drummer is a drummer, why respond in a Steve Hash threat in the first place? Let me be more specific: why worship him? Let me guess: because you're probably SH fan? I'm not and have nothing to add, so I DON"T respond.
- "Treating woman like a special breed , they are equel to men" => (logical implication) Tal Wilkenfield is equal to Will Lee. But after reading your response I can only conclude that she isn't from your point of view. You don't like any of the female drummers mentioned in the threat?
And above all: posts in this threat do not really differ from any post in the Vinnie, Glenn or Dave W. threat.
