sticks. He's just not well known nowadays unless you love classic jazz... ditto for Buddy Rich, Joe Morello, Elvin Jones, Max Roach, and many others. I love the great rock guys as much as anybody...John Bonham, Neil Peart, etc... but there's just something about the technique of those older guys.

Check this out, and tell me who Keith Moon obviously grew up admiring... Gene kicks in around :30

I would agre. I startd playing a few years back and discovered Morello. Great player. Met a guy who knw him. He said he was an even nicer gentleman. Most dont know it but Mel Torme was aalso a fine drummer. Jerry Lewis, Sammy Davis Jr and Johnny Carson were all pretty decent players

His band was at one of our big band weekends at Clemson College in the early 1950s.

Wow. Gene Krupa. What a showman.

Even as an old man he still had it.

Sing Sing Sing from 1971 with the great Lionel Hampton on the vibe.

IIRC, he only lived a few more years after this was recorded.
