Default Re: If you ever dreamed of playing in Buddy Rich's band, this may change that!

After watching the biography on Buddy Rich that his daughter pulled together for him, it's easy to see why he freaked out sometimes. It was stressed in the biography how much perfection he demanded from his band on a daily basis. If he played with all of the best in the world, it's no wonder he got frustrated with younger guys who thought they could play but really actually "sucked" in his mind. I know personally there's never such thing as a perfect gig, but I think Buddy defied that saying with an iron fist. Don't forget it takes a hell of a person to be able to keep his band in line like, and a hell of a drummer to do the things he could do!

hahahaha Mlehnertz, that song is freakin wicked, hahahahahaha
Drumming is my first love, and will likely be the last
