Gene Krupa/Buddy Rich Drum Battle

Even if you're not a drummer, I think you'll be able to appreciate the following video. It's a drum battle between two drumming legends, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich, on the Sammy Davis Jr. Show in 1966.

Many consider Rich to be the gold standard for drumming technique, but Krupa proves to be every bit his equal here.

One of the things that I loved about rock drummers in the 60's and 70's was all of the good ones were able to swing hard because they studied jazz drumming first. These two guys were the people that influenced every drummer from that time.
