Known as the best top 20 drummers of all times , Buddy Rich was by far in my humble opinion the best of them all. My son bought his first drum set from musicians friend drums after watching Buddy Rich in a concert played to him when he was younger.
Even at the age of one, he could drum with the spoon and it had rhythm. And at 18 mths, he started playing the drums for real. He was said to be the youngest child to get paid that high for his performance. He is super talented because he had no training in how to play the drums and could not read any music but could play the drums perfectly well.
That is pretty amazing to anyone listening to him and he was pretty incredible as far as I can tell. My son was in awe and I cannot help envy how talented Buddy Rich was.
