Totally. When Wynton Marsalis was in LA, he brought the entire band to our swing dance club. We danced for 4 hours straight and some of the dancers tagged in to play with them. Two of those guys are Josh Collazo on drums and Christian Letts who both now play with Edward Sharpe. It was an epic night to hear, dance and play with those pros.

What you just watched were some triplets that would make John Bonham cream in his pants.

--------------------------------------------------------------------- Harlem Savoy - Most of the early musicians came from the school of being a multiple threat. You had to be able to get in somewhere to make a buck. So you can find that a lot of them sang, played multiple instruments and could write orchestral scores. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Presevation Hall Jazz Band is one of my clients. Once I was fortunate to work on them at the studio when they were cutting an album. I was set up in one of the back rooms of the hall that was also where they came to work out arrangements/passages before they went up front and recorded it. It was amazing to see these guys come back there and pick up any instrument and start playing effortlessly. Very cool to see them riff off of one another.

  You might be right. Even prog metal dudes who'd put Portnoy and Peart at the top would get to Buddy shortly after, partially because Mike and Neil would tell them he's number one.

Would of liked to see this epic battle happen in the early 80's.

I think most drummers would put him in the top 3, if not right at #1.

Most drummers put Buddy up in their top 10 GOAT lists.

Yes. Rich was on another level of playing. He was so good, that it fed his ego and he destroyed people. That's the bummer. Greatness can either make you desire to push people to get better in a positive way or make you super critical and intolerant of the lesser. The point is clearly mastering your craft at any tempo and learning from all styles. Technique is great but it doesn't do you any good if you can't feel the pocket. Big Band, swing and jazz are incredible foundations for being a good drummer. Being great is not something you can attain by learning. You either have it or you don't. Most of the early musicians came from the school of being a multiple threat. You had to be able to get in somewhere to make a buck. So you can find that a lot of them sang, played multiple instruments and could write orchestral scores. My dad learned that the hard way. He's a great drummer and has played with the greats but he refused to learn to read music and missed out on the chance to take over my Grandpa's band and play at the Blue Room in New Orleans. He could be doing studio stuff now if he had just taken the time to learn.
