Ann ”Honey” Lantree, drummer with the London-based Honeycombs (who got their name from her), died Sunday, December 23 at the age of 75. The group, which included her brother John on bass, recorded the #5 single “Have I The Right” with producer Joe Meek in 1964. It proved to be their only hit, though, as “I Can’t Stop” stalled the next year at #46. She proved to be an inspiration to countless other female drummers over the ensuing decades.
