I’ve seen a LOT of Buddy Rich drum solos on the web already, but I came upon this one I hadn’t seen before, and it is simply amazing! Perhaps this is the best Buddy Rich drum solo?
I can tell this drum solo is performed during his West Side Story arrangement, but I don’t know anything else, except that it was filmed in 1970. If you know, please let me know. Meanwhile, enjoy this drum solo by the greatest drummer that ever lived.
No drummer has ever come close to his speed, nor has duplicated his artistry and musicianship… (I am bowing down to the master, and studying this with earnest)
This is a perfect example of technical brilliance and mastery of the instrument to the point of complete artistry and devotion.
Whenever I need some inspiration with my own drumming, I watch this video.
Anyway, let me know what you think about Buddy Rich’s drum solo. Is this his best? One of his best?
