19. Buddy Rich was better.

As much as I like Gene, and I really do, Buddy was better.

My drum teacher took me and two other students into NYC to Birdland on ‘drum night’ in the 60’s when Buddy was going to be there. Told us, “You have to see this guy play!”
Place was PACKED with drummers and drum lovers.

He could do more with a stick in one hand than other drummers could do with three hands/sticks! It wasn’t human! Just stunned me. And all the drummers in the audience with us went nuts over what he could do. Still amazes me.

Your post included a link, if you scan past Gene’s clip, to Buddy playing solo on the “Tonight Show,” where you see him in action. Just watch what he can do with just one hand!

Thanks for posting and reminding me.
