DRUM BATTLE!


When I was growin' up, my Dad would call us down from our bedrooms for a few things. We came right away 'cause my Dad knew good stuff. " Hey kids, get down here -Buddy Rich -Pink Panther-Shot in the Dark-Jonathan Winters-Don Rickles-Cassius Clay-is on TV, get down here or you'll miss it. Those are the only things I remember him promoting us to watch that way. It was some of the best stuff ever. Buddy was one of my greatest heros, and still is. Thanks Dad.

I was lucky enough to see Buddy play live. There was only one Buddy Rich.
