We all knew about Claire Danes acting chops, but who knew she could play the drums? Indie rocker Ben Lee, Danes longtime beau, called her up on stage to do just that Wednesday night during his sold-out concert at Fez. Danes, soon to be seen in Terminator 3, pounded out a formidable rendition of Neil Youngs Heart of Gold, along with an impromptu band that included deejay Mark Ronson on bass and his girlfriend Rashida Jones, daughter of Quincy, on vocals. Claire really knows how to play, says one witness. And she had a smile on her face the whole time.
