Karen Carpenter – Best Drummer In The World

Karen Carpenter

Yes, Karen Carpenter is the best drummer in the world – according to Playboy magazine readers.

In a readers’ poll conducted by Playboy in 1975, they crowned Karen Carpenter the “Best Drummer in the World” – beating out the likes of Carmine Appice, Ringo Starr, Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, and John Bonham – who came in second!

Apparently, Mr. Bonham was not exactly pleased with the outcome either, stating “I’d like to have it publicised that I came in after Karen Carpenter in the Playboy drummer poll! She couldn’t last ten minutes with a Zeppelin number.”

Looks to me like maybe readers of Playboy back in ’75 weren’t necessarily “tuned in” to the whole drumming scene, but maybe I’m too quick to judge…..have a listen and decide for yourself…

  1. Karen Carpenter beat the dead snot out of the brit faux-rocker Bonham. The “british rock scene” were so filled with fraud rip-off scam artists in the 60s and 70s that their rock scamming attempt came crashing down on them by 1980. Bonham was such a bad non-drummer it wasn’t even funny to compare the slob ape to the power and elegance of the great and legendary Karen Carpenter. Besides that, the non-existent “british scene” were nothing but poor-sport fraud douches who couldn’t even play musical instruments except in the rarest of cases. Nothing worth spending time over.
