i'm guessing dave carpenter.
Thanks. Fretless on electric with Buddy. Died way young.
Dave Carpenter - Wikipedia.
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 think he did that kind of stuff a lot!
i liked buddy's playing, of course, but i always thought he was one of the most miserable human beings in music.
What do you mean?
Not just those. Any talk show appearance of his I’ve ever seen showed him to be a bitter, unpleasant man.
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."
i've heard that a few times....but i just like hearing it again!
The Late Dave Carpenter with the Late Allan Holdsworth.
...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.
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 !
Buddy rich was a total psycho a-hole. And a great drummer.....
I saw something similar in New Orleans many years ago. He ridiculed the bass player on stage. Great drummer - terrible person.
Funny thing though.
I heard that he liked Anthony Jackson.
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.
ANTIGUA FOR THE WIN!!!
