Just finished listening to a CD of Gene. To me he was the epitome of rhythm and showmanship. Not as technical as Buddy but a hell of a lot more fun and innovative. Thanks Gene for giving us tunable toms, hi hats, and drumming with a smile while making it look so easy.

Ditto. In Atlantic City on the Steel Pier in the 60s.
