    Had Karen lived she would have been 60 years old today.

    I remember Karen with fondness and love. Her voice will always hold a special place in my heart!

    Beautiful post, Rick!

    Happy Birthday Karen! You are greatly loved and missed. You are a blessing to us all. Your story helped save my life. Always in our hearts.

    I just finished listening to "All Because of You" and I'm now listening to "Maybe, It's You" Your voice is so very warm, beautiful and soulful. No one else comes close. You are one of a kind. Smile Thank you for sharing your talent/gift with the world.

    Karen today, I think, still has the greatest voice of all time. Rest in peace, and Happy Birthday

    Wonderful posts, karenlove and Catie.

    Here are four fantastic pictures of Karen playing the drums. Such an amazing drummer. Thanks, Sakura for posting the links on A&M.

    I loved this comment on YouTube...wayneonutube (November 23, 2009)
    I was playing in bands in Calif starting the same time as Karen. Believe me, we all knew she was incredible and one of a kind. If there are Angels, she was one. I loved her then and always will.

    Karenlove - Karen's voice also lives in my heart. Her voice was so warm and personal.

    Catie - I agree Karen is the greatest voice of all-time.

    the general: Welcome to the forum! I still miss Karen also, but you are right we are blessed with a fantastic legacy. We should be grateful.

    Cintia - Great to have you here. Welcome to the forum. Best wishes to you in your career as a drummer. Do you play in a band? Have you recorded with anyone?

    gypsyangelheart - Thank you for keeping the conversation going. You are a fantastic person!

    Cintia - Great to have you here. Welcome to the forum. Best wishes to you in your career as a drummer. Do you play in a band? Have you recorded with anyone?

    Hi again! Thanks for the warm welcome.Yes, I recorded with some Brazilian people. Now I'm an arranger and keyboard player. I'm working with music for children. But I play drums for over 25 years. if you want to see my work go to www.cintiaorlandi.com or www.myspace.com/cintiaorlandi . Sorry about that, but I'm not promoting myself. It is just to know my work. Youtube has a video of my solo and I was surprised how my style is close to Karen's when I play pop/rock....Smile
    Cheers

    Thanks for your kind words, Rick.

    Amazing web site and My Space page, Cintia. I'm listening to Eye of the Storm, right now. I love it. Also, your pictures on your site and My space page are wonderful. Beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us. I'm off to listen to more of your songs.

    I look forward to chatting with everyone.

    That's great, Catie. Good luck with your drum lessons and keep us posted. I'm sure Karen is looking down and smiling. Smile I'm sure she loves the fact that so many girls/women are playing the drums. She really paved the way.
    I love this quote regarding Karen and the drums....
    "I had no idea whether I could play 'em or not, but I wanted to and I was very determined. . . but the band director said "That's not really normal." Of course, all you have to tell me is that something's not normal and I'll go for it!!" Karen Carpenter
    Love her!

    It really does feel like family here.

    Cintia... I'm with the majority here... you are a fantastic drummer... excellent work. I like all your songs, which I've heard so far. I am, though, partial to The Undercover Agent and Eye Of The Storm. I really like the Centro Cultural 2009 picture on your MySpace site.

    Catie... Best wishes to you in your venture with drumming. If you put any recordings on YouTube, MySpace or Facebook please send us links...

    Gypsy... I really like that particular Karen Carpenter quote also. That's one of the aspects of her personality that makes me like her. If it's not normal she goes for it...
