There probably isn’t a Rock and Roll drummer who wasn’t influenced by Buddy Rich. He has been called many things, some of them not so nice.
There was one thing Buddy loved being called, “Daddy”.
Buddy left us 31 years ago today. He was only 69 years old.
Honestly, probably the greatest drummer the world has ever heard.
We would love to hear your comments on how Buddy’s style made you think.
RIP Buddy. The picture below is with his little girl Cathy. — with Gregg Potter and Cathy Rich.
