I saw Buddy Rich back in 1981 - 2. Man that was impressive. just saw the last 15 minutes of the concert but it was well worth it.
I've seen Terry Bozzio back in 1990ish and that was amazing as well. There were only about 50 people at First Avenue and we were all digging it.
But alas, finances aren't where they need to be to otherwise I'd be front row center :)

My only close encounter with a big name drummer was when I was shooting a music festival from backstage, and had Ginger Baker in my sights. Corker... even though he was starting to get arthritis at that point.

Looks great! I saw Bozio a few times with Zappa and once with Missing Persons. This show reminds me of a show I was lucky enough to be at in the early 80s (it was a benefit for someone but I can't remember who) where Carmine Appice hosted and played the whole show with a lot of the bands he was in and more including Beck, Bogart and Appice. I couldn't believe his arms didn't fall off, it was like 4-5 hours and ended with Vanilla Fudge.

Frank -> That sounds frickin' amazing.
Carmine was an awesome musician.
Bozio with Zappa would have been great!! I saw Bozio in his weird Trio in the early 90's so a bit past all that really cool innovative music. :)

I was a big fan of Buddy Rich as a kid - through listening to my Dad's albums. He was amazing indeed and when I finally got to go see him live when I was a young musician just starting out (I was about 13/14) I got to go up to get his autograph and grumbled something and said "go away kid I don't do that." :(
Later as I got to know some other pros that had worked with him said he was a total a-hole and treated everybody like that - so at least he didn't just single me out! ;)
So no disrespect to his legend, but match him up to other big band greats who were decent appreciative and approachable people (like Maynard Ferguson and Doc Severenson) - you don't have to be an ass to your fans.
