Burning for Buddy missing drummers?

Was watching a Danny Seraphine video the other day and got to wondering why he (and Carl Palmer) never did any of the Burning for Buddy gigs.

Buddy was good friends with Carl and Buddy said he admired Danny as one of the up and coming drummers back in the day.

Makes me wonder as Billy Cobham and Buddy were not on the best terms,but Billy did a clip for Burning for Buddy.

Danny was in a self imposed exile during the period of the Burning for Buddy albums. He relates in his excellent book that he was lacking in confidence about his drumming abilities and had lost interest in playing the drums during that period of time. Fortunately he is back now and playing better then ever.
