uberalice: Great drummer but, man, he was a a-hole.

[YouTube video]


A horn player who had been playing with Buddy Rich for many years came back from vacation to hear a rumour that Buddy had died. He didn't quite believe it, so he phoned Buddy's wife and said "Can I speak to Buddy please?" Buddy's wife said, "I'm sorry, Buddy passed away last week." "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that," he said, and hung up. A couple of hours later, he called her again. "Is Buddy there please?" "No, I'm sorry. Buddy's no longer with us," said Buddy's wife. And hung up the phone. Ten minuted later, he called Buddy's wife again. "Can I speak to Buddy please?" he said. She recognised his voice, and said: "Look, I've told you before, BUDDY'S DEAD!" And slammed down the phone. Two minutes later, and the phone rang again... "Is Buddy at home please?" the horn player asked. Buddy's wife was furious. "I'm not going to tell you again, Buddy is dead.. D. E. A. D. DEAD. Why do you keep ringing me to ask for Buddy???!!!!" He thought for a moment, and said: "I just love hearing you say it."

I know you're never supposed to read YouTube comments, but I did. And what got me was how so many drummers were amazed/appalled/flabbergasted that Buddy switched from traditional grip to match grip back to traditional grip during this. Many of them act like it was as if Da Vinci was caught using a crayon to color in the Mona Lisa or something.

I'm amazed when drummers don't eat their drumsticks.

Meh.  Professionals often take their craft very seriously.

Huh? There were many reasons Buddy was an asshole.

Cool.  Were they in the video uberalice posted?
