Summary
From his debut on the vaudeville stage at 18 months old as "Traps, the Drum Wonder," through his tenure with Bunny Berigan, Artie Shaw and Tommy Dorsey, to fronting his own big band for 20 years, Buddy Rich lived up to the billing of "the world's greatest drummer." This comprehensive book covers his whole life story and features never-before-seen or published pictures, interviews, and the most complete discography ever compiled. Essential reading for drummers and jazz fans. Hardcover.
