Default Buddy Rich

Buddy Rich is a great drummer, the drummer I take private lessons from was taught by Buddy. What are your thoughts on him?

What are our thoughts on Buddy? or What are our thoughts on your instructor? :)
I was not aware that Buddy taught. I always heard that he didn't teach.
Who is your instructor who was taught by Buddy?

Buddy Rich is a great drummer, probably the best ever. Superb to watch and listen to.
I would not have wanted to work for Buddy. Even if I played sax in his big band, and he didn't bawl me out, I would not have wanted to witness his temper with others. Uncool.

Does your instructor bawl you out? Was he ever bawled out by Buddy?

I know that you're asking about Buddy and not your drum teacher - Some people!

Anyway, I really enjoy watching Buddy Rich play. His left wrist action on the snare was amazing - I have good wrists, but not that good. Also, Buddy Rich was certainly a character and a half.

If you do a search, you can probably find millions (well maybe not millions) of threads about him.

Buddy didn't teach at all,and didn't give lessons.Your teacher may have learned a few things from watching Buddy,or may have even spoken to him at some time,but not from private lessons.Sorry man,but that's just not true.

Thanks Steve, I was waiting for someone to back me up in this thread.
Buddy never personally taught. That is fact.

Buddy Rich didn't teach people, he schooled them.
