Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
Every one can give there opinions all day long about who the best drummers are,and most will tell you it's Buddy-especailly the people who have experienced his show. I have not seen him live,but I can get somewhat of an experience through the videos and just to see the video is more than amazing!
The opinions on him about him just being a big band drummer or a repetitive drummer are out there because people are not learning more about what kind(s!) of music Buddy played. And people are not listening to what he said. He said that there is no style(or,there are no rock or jazz drummers-there are only drummers) and that if you can play,then you can play any type of music.
