Check out this video of Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa "battling" it out. It is amazing how far drumming has progressed in 40 years. I think Gene Krupa's solo is pretty pathetic by TODAY's standards but Buddy Rich still smokes. Watch around the 2 minute mark as Buddy goes into hyperdrive.
If you guys haven subscribed to this site yet you should. Every day I get another excellent video. Enjoyhttp://drum--videos.com/2011/gene-krupa-and-buddy-rich/
