The Buddy Rich Method, is that where you act like a jerk and insult everyone? :blink:

Funny but true story, I was at the 1976 Summer NAMM show with a drummer friend, who worked really hard at his "Buddy Rich" attitude. Buddy Rich gave a short demo at one of the booths (Slingerland perhaps?) and afterwards Buddy did autographs on 8 x 10 photos that they provided to us. My friend throws his picture at Buddy and says something along the lines of "Sign This". Buddy stops and makes him apologize in front of everyone and ask nicely for his autograph.

The sad part is that I lost my autographed picture, along with a bunch of vintage drum catalogs, in a move years ago.

BR appeared at the 23 June 1975 NAMM show at the Hilton Hotel in Chicago and played a 1/2 hour set with Bunky Green, Phil Wilson, Dennis Tini and Rufus Reid.
