Hi bigbonzo maybe I wrote that wrong; I meant Bonzo thought Krupa was a god, according to his brother:That doesn't say that Bonham called himself a god, as what Stretsch stated.
So, my original question still stands.
There were a lot of drummers who took the triplet thing to an extreme and played almost entire drum solos off of that. But, probably the only thing they had the ability to copy from Buddy - HA!
This is just so great!! Yeah its seems kinda corny, but he was inventing. I love the double strokes he plays on the floor tom. I saw this video a little while back and noticed it wasn't just single strokes. Gives it that little lilt and swing in the feel.
