Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
John looked up to Buddy and I've heard John play jazz during an interlude when
Page broke a string. Obviously Zeppelin's music wasn't suited for that kind of drumming
so John played in the most suitable style for the band. He took the Carmine thing and and added his own flair to it.
Buddy and John played on the same bill at Newport Jazz Festival in 1969.
Buddy saw John at Madison Square Garden in 1973.
