He deserves to be there. Iconic drummer. Maybe not the "best" drummer, but definitely had his own style, and for that, he gets bonus points. He's continued a career, at whatever level, and is rock steady. that's the consummate professional to me. Peace. This girl on my facebook did his lighting on his last tour. She loved the job. I got to see some nice photos of it.

One thing that impresses me the most (besides gigging in his seventies) is his is devotion to the Ludwig Brand after all these decades.
That sort of loyalty in business is rare these days.

Are you sure they didn't mean to say "Bernard Purdie?"

Yeah I saw that and my first thought was "wow, a rock and roll legend, drum hero, and cultural icon has to share an honor with effing Green Day" and I felt sad about the world.

Then I thought "oh this is probably how those guys who earned MBEs on the battlefield felt sharing it with The Beatles" :-P
