DRUM BATTLE ROYALE!


Drum solos may be out of fashion (I think of the drunk yelling out "Caravan with a drum solo!") but here are two great drummers from the old school, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich, battling it out like the wizards in Lord of the Rings. These guys have been practicing their rudiments and paraddidles, as our school bandleader Mr. Fitzimmons used to say.

Go, man, Go!

great stuff. I just watched a long Ginger Baker drum solo the other day that was during a fairly recent Cream reunion tour. It's on youtube.

Thanks for the tip, I'll track it down. I posted some Cream not long ago -- doing "Crossroads." Those guys could really play!
