The Carpenters were a hugely successful musical brother-sister duo from the 1970s. Karen Carpenter‘s voice is one of the most iconic of the decade and the duo created some of the best pop ballads of all time. She was also an excellent drummer and percussionist! Sadly her life ended way too soon with heart failure caused by her struggles with anorexia. She remains a true musical legend. Now 76, her brother Richard Carpenter‘s legacy as arranger, pianist, and producer will also remain intact forever.
