Check out the video interview I posted in post#11. It has some amazing footage of young Duffy, and the FB tribute written by drummer, Billy Paul, in post #14. Nobody ever drove a band better than that, IMO.He was a fixture down here is South Florida, he would visit the local Sam Ash in Margate, Fl....you would run into him. He worked with the schools in Palm Beach County. Great guy, friendly ......very sad. Surely knew how to drive a band!
What a shame. Seems like a tremendous talent and a great guy. And if he had half the fun playing that he seemd to he had a wonderful life. Found this about him.He was incredible. Wow. I saw this back then, and never saw anything like it before, completely blew me away. Absolute commitment and forward motion.
Duffy was great!! I never knew why he was not a household name among drummers. That cat could swing.He was incredible. Wow. I saw this back then, and never saw anything like it before, completely blew me away. Absolute commitment and forward motion.
HOLY SMOKES! That second video is nuts! It must have just gone up on youtube. Never seen it before. I’ve always said Duffy had more energy in his little finger than most drummers have in their whole family. You should have seen him in his 20’s. I still can’t believe he’s gone.He knew how to get a great sound, and hit pretty hard! He brought it! Love some of those licks!
