Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
I did not read through this whole thread but I thought I would throw in an short funny of him.
While Buddy Rich was being prepped for surgery, the nurse asked him if he had any allergies. He said no, but then quickly corrected himself and said "Oh yeah, I am allergic to one thing, country music."
Frank Zappa was the one who paid for his surgery, Rich at the time was in trouble from the IRS.
