Default Re: Mr. Drums "Buddy Rich"

Ditto the Tonight Show appearances. I think Johnny Carson did alot to make some of us younger viewers at the time aware Buddy. I think it's great that Johnny really liked the drums and played a little.

For me, Buddy always had this intimidating persona on the show and a kind of cutting humor, like I was never quite sure what to make of him at the time. Now I see that alot of that was shtick but based on the fact that (from what I hear) Buddy could be a "formidable" person in real life.

Even now when I watch the clips that are out there, I think that it shouldn't be humanly possible to do what he does.
