Today is the 50th birthday of Janet Weiss. Here are some tidbits I found online.
“Drum Fill Friday, With Sleater-Kinney’s Janet Weiss”. Janet picks some of her fave drum fills, we guess where they come from.
Janet tells us “10 Ways to Be a Kick-Ass Drummer”. “[B]eing cool and foxy isn’t bad either. I drag a fan around with me so my hair doesn’t stick to my face when I whip it around.”
The Petrels, “I Wanna Drum Like Janet Weiss”.
Backing Elliott Smith on “Waltz #2 (XO) in 1998 (“There’s going to come the day when your band leader writes a sensitive song. You must be ready.”):
And my favorite Janet song by Sleater-Kinney: “Youth Decay”.
