I hope that one day when I get older, I mean old enough to where people assume that I’m some sort of grandmother, that I’m this cool. I aim to be just like this grandmother who is still kicking ass at the ripe age of 55.
“Have you ever found yourself making assumptions about someone before you’ve met them? What about before seeing them play drums? From assuming she plays ‘quieter’ instruments to not being taken seriously before an audition, Dorothea Taylor has heard it all when it comes to judging a book by its cover. She’s here to prove that you can’t always accurately assess a drummer – or anybody – by how they look. Check out Dorothea’s cover of ‘Down With The Sickness’ by Disturbed!”
Dorothea Taylor also known as the godmother of drumming. Has her own Instagram account where she’s also a church organist, a drumline instructor and a private drumming teacher.
Check out the video down below of how this 55 year old it’s still kicking ass and covering songs on her drums.
