Buddy Rich certainly knew his way around the drums!

Aw, jeez, this is going to have me surfing YouTube off and on all day. I saw Buddy Rich and his band several times when I was in college and the army, and used to stay up late when he was on the Tonight Show. Good as his solos were, no one--ever--drove a band the way he did. He's been dead almost 30 years, and I still find myself up alte three or four times a year watching old videos, and his band is a regular sidekick on car trips and during the work day.

Here he is, in a different setting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHOej4eG9i0

I waste a least 2-3 hours a week on you tube looking at this stuff.
