Re: The Grand Master BR
Buddy was an all-around great entertainer. If you read about him, or have read about him, you'll find out that he was once thought to be the highest paid child entertainer in the world. The man performed his first drum solo at the age of 18 months old for cryin out loud! Watch a video of Buddy and then watch any other drummer and there's no comparison. He may have well been the arrogant, mean cuss that people who knew him or played with him said he was, but the guy was the best ever! I don't think we'll ever see anyone that good ever again. As Phil Collins said: "He(Buddy) was a one-off."
