Buddy Rich

By way of apology for my offensive post yesterday, I give you the genius of Buddy Rich.




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.

Also, 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.

Great vids. Krupa was the man in his day, but Buddy just blew him (and everyone else) away.
