Aside from the laugh of Buddy creating his matched grip straw man, the vid really shows how to get around the kit with trad.
For those who know the stories about Buddy Rich, this video is comical for two distinct reasons:
#1 - Buddy used the matched grip many times in his career. You can see it in videos
from the 1940's up through 1987. I have personally seen him use the matched grip
#2 - Buddy used to state that he never made mistakes. There is a real obvious blunder in
the video. He even says the "s" word while recovering from the boo-boo !!
