Click Here for the Top Ten Most Determined Drummers…

The following post is dedicated to my wonderful sister Abi, because she asked for it 🙂

For those of you who aren’t Abi, let me provide you with some context:

  1. A few years ago, after staring intently at my face for at least a minute, my sister declared that I was ‘too ugly to be in a band’.
  2. Yesterday, after her hens day, my sister drunkenly called me up at midnight to tell me that I probably wasn’t too ugly to be in a band, but that I couldn’t be the lead singer because I can’t sing well enough. Instead, I could be the drummer, because I have determination.
  3. I have never wanted to be in a band, nor do I play the drums.
  4. I love my sister.

So, as per her request, here is a Buzzfeed inspired list of the ‘Top Ten Most Determined Drummers’ (some of whom are probably too ugly to be in a band):


John Bonham

He is Number One on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Drummers Of All Time, so he should probably be on this list.

Dave Grohl

D for Dave.

D for Determination.

Enough said.

Ringo Starr

On this list purely because he narrated Thomas the Tank Engine.

Karen Carpenter

This lady is amazing. Beautiful, a stunning singer and a wicked drummer. She is essentially a one lady band.

Larry Mullen Jr.

Any drummer that can put up with Bono for forty-odd years has to be pretty determined.

That little kid from Little Red

I have no idea what his name is, but he JUST TRIES SO HARD!

Look how tall I am!

Meg White

Because she is good and this list didn’t have nearly enough lady drummers.

Mick Fleetwood

If he weren’t so determined, the band would have been called Mac Fleetwood.

Phil Collins

I really have no idea about drummers. If you think someone has been snubbed, blame Abi.

P.S. Here’s a bonus. That kid from Love Actually!
