From Time magazine. Sept. 8, 2008
"From the distinctive cymbal crashes that punctuate Simon and Garfunkel's The Boxer
to the chugging beat of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire, the work of drummer Buddy Harman can be heard on some 18,000 recordings. The Nashville native took to the drums at a very early age, following in the footsteps of his mother, who played percussion in the family band. Over the course of his nearly half-century career, he mastered a wide variety of styles. He became a fixture in Nashville, accompanying everyone from Elvis Presley and Tammy Wynette to Dolly Parton. He was 79."
18000 is a lot of recordings. RIP
Less than 300 days until retirement.
