Sheila E. gives a shout out to Karen Carpenter

I just came across this and I don't recall seeing it posted here. In an interview last summer Sheila E. was asked by Larry King if she was the only famous female drummer. Her response, though short, included a nod to Karen Carpenter. The pertinent part begins at the 7:42 mark. I've often wondered how Sheila E. felt about Karen, and it was nice to see that she had such respect for her.

^^Thanks for that ! She was obviously impressed with Karen !
Now, I know Larry King has interviewed Richard Carpenter,
thus , surprising that he was unfamiliar with Karen Carpenter as a drummer !
