Default Re: Who else saw Buddy Rich live?

I saw Buddy play at Yukon High School in 1983 or 1984. He fired one of the trumpet players right after the first song. Say what you want about Buddy, I would rather have people skills and be someone wants to be around. His most notable recording is of him cussing his band out on the bus. Unfortunately, this is what he may be remembered for more than his great playing. Vinnie Coluiata is of a greater caliber than Buddy could ever hope to reach and a much better person
