  3. I saw Buddy quite a few years ago here in Michigan. He totally bitched the bassist out for starting the song out wrong. Then restarted the song.
    Don’t know who the bassist was. But very memorable.

    i liked buddy's playing, of course, but i always thought he was one of the most miserable human beings in music. :D

    Not just those. Any talk show appearance of his I’ve ever seen showed him to be a bitter, unpleasant man.

  8. Wow! Other than the swearing, it brought back that memory.

    A former member of Buddy's band called his house after his passing. "Is Buddy there?"
    "No, Buddy's dead."
    The next day, he called again. "Can I talk to Buddy?"
    "No, Buddy's dead."
    The next day, he called again. "May I speak to Buddy?
    "I told you! Buddy's dead! Why do you keep calling?!?"
    "I just like to hear it."

    ...just stumbled onto this album. Recorded in 2006, released in 2013.

    Tis the Season...Carpenter & Colaiuta (+ some other Jazz/session monsters) are on this album.
  13. You always hear these stories about how difficult he could be, I don't really know what he was like. But that's the funniest thing I've read in a long time !

  15. I saw something similar in New Orleans many years ago. He ridiculed the bass player on stage. Great drummer - terrible person.

    Jerry Seinfeld mentioned the Buddy Rants and how all his comedy buddies loved to the tapes. I think they even did a bit about it on his sitcom.
    Guess you needed a thick skin to work for BR.
