Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich
What an awesome and inspiring drummer.
I loved the sonic boom he elicited from his toms - the crisp crack he got from the snare - the ultra bright cymbal ring - he had the touch and technique without peer in his time.
It's easy in this age to say this or that drummer today is as good - and if they are it's because it was pioneered by Mr Rich.
I would like to see a poll from the drummers that we all vote as the top 100 - who do they think was the best ever - I think we already know the answer.
The Grand Master Buddy Rich - what more need be said?
