Default Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

Buddy Rich inspired a generation of drummers. I remember watching him on the tube throughout the sixties as I grew up (Johnny Carson loved Buddy!). His left hand was just a monster of control and speed, and he continued great drumming till his death. I was surprised with his interest in the martial arts as I always heard he was somewhat superstitious and concerned about injuring his hands. Probably an urban legend. He probably wacked bricks in half with that left hand. What a legacy with the Buddy Rich Band!!
