It's all in the left hand - Buddy

This guy should be good with chopsticks.

Maybe Buddy Rich's left handed? ;-)

Actually, to drummers as good as he, there's really not much of a difference between the hands. They have to be able to do anything with either hand. If you watch carefully, you can even see how he sometimes switches a line of beats seamlessly from right to left or vice versa.

But: yes, of course, truely amazing. He also appeared in the muppet show once and had a "drum duel" with Animal, this muppet show monster drummer. An awesome appearance as well.

I was just YouTube-ing and came across this video. Buddy Rich was amazing. I can't tell you how many times I have replayed this one video in the last hour alone :-)
