Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
My first drumset was a kit that Buddy did a clinic on back in '74. But I didn't go to the clinic, and all I have is my brothers word, because it was he who went to the clinic, and it was he who owned the drums before he gave them to me when I was 14. It was a blue sparkle Ludwig 5 piece. They were traded for an ugly Slingerland kit that some guy swindled me into buying, because he was a pro player, and something about the kit on stage threw me.
Anyway, it's hearsay but it's close enough for me. Heck, at least I was aware of Buddy at an early age.
