Gene's still not forgotten......funny comment @ 2.45 as Louie continues his drumming, "Mr. Chairman, would you have Gene Krupa removed"....(our government hard at work!)

Back in the '80s NPR reporter Robert Crulwich did an article on drum machines (or maybe it was computer-driven music), positing the question "Is it possible for a machine to play like Gene Krupa?"

I marveled that even when Buddy Rich and Ringo Starr had enjoyed much more exposure over the previous two decades, the person who best represented playing drums as a musical instrument to the general public in the late 1980s was still Gene Krupa.
