Re: Joey Jordison
WOW! I've ALWAYS considered Buddy Rich the first "Joey Jordison" or "Travis Barker". Let me ellaborate.
First, I don't know enough of his music to say he's the greatest or worst drummer ever, but what I have seen and heard:
1- He was the original flashy drummer (and this upside-down drumming clip takes the cake)
2- He had amazing fast chops
3- He lacked taste from time to time, but was still always really 'cool'
4- He couldn't read music
5- He was always the drummer non-drummers were most impressed with
So I wonder. If drummerworld.com were around 50 years ago, would someone post a thread saying how much "Buddy Rich RULEZ!" heheh (oh man, I kill me sometimes)
