Re: Gene Krupa
They're both incredible musicians and drumming icons in their own right. I'd rather not get into the whole Krupa Ns. Rich thing in this forum...you know...the one titled "Gene Krupa"....not "Gene Vs. Buddy."
Gene was an incredible showman...every time I watch him I'm completely rivited by his general personality on the drums! He obviously isn't the biggest chops hound of the time, but he was no slouch either. He had enough tools to get the job done and make sure everyone was enjoying it! I love Gene's playing and I respect his musical body as a whole. Plus...in every interview he seems like such a cool guy!
