Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
Who ever said he was surrounded by jerks(at least by the people that called him jerk,arrogent,or what ever),I agree 100%! These people who call him a jerk behind his back should take a look in the mirror. There should be a certain level of respect because you can not say any thing to his face(or behind his back!) since he has passed on. Anywho...
I will agree with any one that thinks he is the best that ever set behing the drums. Every little gracefull note that Buddy played was purposely to be played as music. I will also agree with who ever said that if any of the top players today were to battle him,they would get smoked! And if you were to ask any of these top players of today if they would get smoked,almost all of them would agree to that.
