Default Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

Jon,

I couldn't agree more. Those of us who grew up listening to and watching Buddy have an "understanding" of the whole person. My comment was really intended for people who are new to Buddy, and "write him off" because they heard a specific (negative) story.

I love and miss him, for a variety of reasons. Whatever else is said, he absolutely was one of a kind.
