Default Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

I never cared much for Buddy Rich, Although I respect him for what he did for drumming, I could never listen to him solo, To me, it seems like all his solos are just him doing rudiments very fast, then slowing down, and playing them fast again all while doing stick tricks and show-man stuff like that. It's extremely hard, but I don't find it that interesting. I much prefer the more lyrical solos of Tony Williams or Joe Morello. Their solo's could sing! He was also kind of an A-hole, but thats not relevent to his drumming.
