...The BUDDY RICH Thread

Postby Pocketplayer » Mon Dec 04, 2017 7:40 pm

Cannot believe we haven't started this before...

A different listen...



Buddy Bio



It is hard not to get into "technique talk" with Buddy rather than
focus on music, which almost takes a back seat with this musician and artist.
So, it will come up...for me, as a matched grip player, I am interested in his
RIGHT hand. When he goes into crazy speed mode, his grip seems to tighten,
especially if he is moving from full strokes. The video when he plays timpani
displays these full strokes (arching strokes really).

Whenever I need some inspiration, this clip is one of the things I turn to, he has a lot of power and fire here. And that snare is ridiculous.

He makes a mistake around 6:23, and you can see from his face how much that pissed him off. He's deep inside his head.

He sounds very Bonham-esque, or Bonhan sounds very Rich-esque.

Unbeknownst to many, odd time is just short for Odd-Arne time.

Those Buddy tapes were the inspiration for Seinfeld
episode with Kenny Bania, The Opposite, and
Frank Costanza...Buddy should have got some cash!



This thread took a weird intro turn to mistakes and the
Buddy tapes...now back to the maestro in action!
