Default Re: Mr. Drums "Buddy Rich"

That is one thing I never understood. Often times kids mention "who is the fastest" or "how can I play faster" and they get shot down by some of the member.

Yet, these are the same people who love BR.

Now, I have never seen somebody play like BR. Truely unbelieveable. But, BR solos were almost always about speed. Of course he had stellar technique, but, from what I have seen, BR was playing fast almost all the time.

I love BR and he was the greatest, but a lot of what he did that amazed us was based on his speed.

I think if he was a kid now, he would be a great death metal drummer!
