Re: Buddy Rich on Bonham
okay...while i don't doubt buddy's talent and that he probably could do something like that i must make a few observations:
1) the drummer who watched buddy made his own subjective judgement of buddy's bonzo impersonation. buddy may have only closely copied bonham.
2) copying a groove is very different from making one up. so i'm not that impressed.
3) the fact that buddy was aware enough of bonzo to be able to copy his playing is quite an endorsement of bonham's skill. although, from what i have seen of BR, he would never admit to it, he probably deep inside admired bonham.
