Default Gene Krupa the music man

Gene Krupa once said if the crowd can't dance while i'm soloing i feel like i failed playing that solo. This guy didn't have the speed Buddy Rich had but he was by far the most musical drummer that ever lived. Try playing medium tempo eighth notes and swing them on a snare drum Record it and listen it's not easy to swing it liKe you think. Krupa had that touch better than anyone except maybe for Chick Web The fast drummers like Buddy Rich, Mike Mangini, Art Verdi, Virgil Donati,Flo whats his face Billy Cobham, Dennis Chambers and the rest couldn't hold a candle to Gene's touch. Don't get me wrong i admire these guys for what they can do but Gene is the music man
