Default Re: Freddie Gruber - GURU

I was lucky enough to study with Freddie as a teenager. Freddie was close to the family of my best friend from high school.

Freddie is not, himself, a great drummer. He hung out with a lot of great drummers (foremost Buddy Rich) and figured out how to communicate technique to other drummers. The things I learned from Freddie at a young age have served me very well throughout my life. I'm really grateful I had that opportunity.
