So grumbling, Earl took the cinefilm machine and transcription paper into a small room and spent 2 to 3 hours transcribing the solo. He then recorded it in one take.
Earl Palmer was The Man! The only drummer Buddy Rich ever hired.
Read the Earl Palmer biography, Backbeat. Earl Palmer is one of the greatest drummers that ever lived. I love him!
Thats awesome, I like little stories similar to that.
