They aren't alive but Max Roach and Buddy Rich. Alive would be Thomas Lang and Billy Ward and Steve Jordan.

Jim Chapin, Joe Morello, Danny Gotleib, Billy Gladstone.
So I basically need to get off my ass...Danny is an hour away from me, I got to hang with Chapin a few Namm's ago, Joe is in NY I think, and If I could flux capacitate I'd be hanging with Gladstone watching him make drums for me and Tony Williams who would also be there.

Max is still alive. As far as I know his familly has ask for some privacy. There was some hub bub about someone starting the alzeimers rumor a while back. My guess is that at his age things change. I'r rather remember him as he was in my eyes than having health problems. We Love You Max!
