Looks like they couldn't get Buddy a WMP Seat-Case either.....As a kid Buddy was god to me - fast fast fast fast fast. And flashy. And cocky. During one cruise-through at the local music store, I nabbed a Rogers flyer with this color photo of Buddy on the cover:

The inside of the foldout flyer had a photo of a snazzy Rogers outfit and also this cropped photo of Buddy that my pre-teen keen sense of detection told me was taken at the same time/place as the cover shot:

And that was that was that until I recently stumbled upon a bunch of other photos also taken at the same place/time, which apparently turned out to be the famous drum solo event at the 1965 Newport Jazz Festival (featuring Louie Bellson, Elvin Jones and Art Blakey and Buddy) about which Buddy said, "I did things that day that I didn't even know I was capable of playing...I had said it all, man. Like I had never said it before. Or since."

Cool. Let me be so bold to post one of me from 10 years ago as well. I love how this turned out.
As much as I love Stewart’s playing, I agree.This is the ad that made me go out and buy Rude cymbals. I sold them not long after. I wasn't really a fan of the sound.
