Total runtime 90min

Gene Krupa (himself the one-time ‘king of the drummers’) called Buddy Rich ‘the greatest drummer ever to have drawn breath.’ Rich’s self-taught revolutionary style would go on to influence many generations of great percussionists, especially in the field of rock. With this fine selection of clips and shows we offer you a chance to hear him in conversation with Michael Parkinson and witness him in blistering action.
