4 Of Our Favourite Buddy Rich Moments!

Happy Birthday, Buddy Rich!

One of the founding fathers of drumming, Bernard “Buddy” Rich has created a legacy that will last generations. His natural drumming ability began from the ripe old age of 2, which continued to be nurtured and grown upon throughout his entire career. We celebrate one of the most iconic drummers to have ever lived by picking 4 moments where he was simply MIND-BLOWING!

What makes this video even more incredible is the fact that Buddy CAN’T read sheet music, he does the whole thing from memory. To command and lead the band with such technical ability is nothing short of amazing…

The whole thing is a masterpiece, but his hi-hat technique is just off the charts!

Buddy Rich: Drum Solo – 1974

Here’s 8 minutes and 40 seconds of Buddy Rich just being a BADASS.

Buddy Rich Parkinson the last interview 1987

It only seems right to round out this list with the first part of this wonderful interview, which sadly turned out to be Buddys last. He shares some fantastic stories and talks about career highlights. This is only part 1, so make sure you don’t miss part 2 and 3!

Buddy Rich is one of the most iconic drummers to have ever lived, known by musicians and non-drummers alike. He’ll continue to be an inspiration to every drummer with his unmatchable technique and passion.
