Video: Buddy Rich + Fastest Drummer Ever

I’ve never been into drum solos, but Buddy Rich is always fun to watch. One of the best drummers ever.

Was Buddy Rich the fastest drummer ever? Not according to measured speed against a drum hit counting machine. For drumming as a speed sport that title is currently held by Tom Grosset, but as far as I know Buddy Rich never tried. 

Grosset beat Mike Mangini’s 1200 beats per minute.
