“I’d say I was the drummer and people would look at me and go, ‘Really?,’” Glaspie recalls. “But then I’d sit down and play and it was, ‘I guess she is the drummer.’ After almost every show, a lot of females come up to thank me for what I’m doing, playing in a male-dominated world. I’m here doing it because it’s what I love, not to prove a point. But that’s what happens in the process.”
