Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich, and Chick Webb, Jo Jones are the people responsible for bringing the drums up front, and giving them the kind of respect enjoy today. These people are also somewhat responsible for a lot of what we play on the drums today, because they defined the instrument.
It also must be said that great drummers are torch bearers, in that they take the legacy from someone & hand it to over to someonene else.
You could like or dislike Buddy's music but under no circumstances could you say Buddy was overrated.
