The best you can hope for in this life is that your delusions are benign and your compulsions have utility. -- Scott Adams
And if you needed any more reason why Buddy Rich was awesome, check him out on the Muppets (complete with Nordic subtitles):
Apology accepted.I didn't have to watch the videos, (but I still did) I've seen them a few dozen times. Hell, I even had Buddy Rich albums back in the day. (yes! A drummer made albums)Since you're googling and you tubing your days away, try this Gene Krupa vs. Buddy Rich drum battle.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwJAAlXomVkAlso, just to add a little Canadian flair. You might want to check out what April Wine's 70 year old drummer Jerry Mercer does between sets.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIiDtvoOeiYDrummers ROCK!
I was actually jumping up and down in my house yelling HOO AH!!! while I watched. Great stuff!
Great vids. Krupa was the man in his day, but Buddy just blew him (and everyone else) away. -DrC
