Buddy Rich vs Animal Drum Battle


Rabs

Recommended Posts

Good fun. Astonishing drumming.

 

Animal is a very underated drummer. Without his chains he might have won....

It would be somewhat fitting to find out that the drumming for Animal was performed by Gene Krupa...

In fact it was Ed Shaughnessy, very fine player indeed, Goodman/Shearing/Basie/etc, also on Johnny Carson's "Tonight" show for years.....was known for his drum competitions with Buddy!

My first (and subsequently main) reference for Drum Battle is this old vinyl thing (with which I'm sure you are familiar) I discovered in a second-hand shop around 40 years ago...

I know, right? Only the best television band in history ever EVER. Gawd I'm glad I lived through that!
