Do You Really Care?

Recommended Posts

I wish I played for someone that cared this much.

It's an 11 minute clip. Some of you have heard this and some not.

***ADMIN NOTICE: LINK FEATURES LOTS OF SWEARING***

For reference purposes a "clam" is a bad note.

Comments?

I wouldn't care enough to become an odious bully - but then I'd never be anywhere near as great on bass as Rich was on drums.

You can care this much without being a complete asshat

Little different, they are top jazz players and they're playing with the best.

If someone spoke to me like that when I was working on the ships I'll tell them where to go.

Each to their own!! I really think his behaviour stank, and it actually stops me from enjoying his music. James Brown behaved in a very similar way (but it would take a lot to put me off his music)!

I saw an interview with Bootsy Collins being asked 'what was it like working for James Brown?'. Collins replied that 'It was like being in the army'.

The film Whiplash springs to mind.

I understand the connection but I enjoyed that film more than Buddy Rich ranting.

You really wouldn’t…!

Buddy Rich was a violent racist bully, hated by virtually everybody in the business. Read what Walter Trout had to say about meeting him and his treatment of a fan who dared to ask him to sign something in a drum store. There are plenty of demanding band leaders around who can still function as nice guys yet still insist on the highest standards, including people like Steve Via.

Rich was a different proposition all together, a very unpleasant individual…

I gave it 1m14. I listen to nobody using language like that, unless they have a recognised medical condition. There are ways of expressing oneself other than constant profanities, whatever the grievances.

The guy at the end does say words to that effect which doesn't go down too well.

What a hateful individual. No payday is worth being treated like that.

Yeah, but you get to play with BUDDY RICH! I'd rather play for Buddy Guy.

Slightly OT, but this made me laugh. Buddy Guy telling the Red Rocks crowd off for getting the song wrong (@ approx 29:30 in)

When the band was "on" he was very generous with compliments.

I think There a little cultural difference here.

Me, Buddy is what a lot of guys need. A good kick in the butt.

That's one incident. Our drummer met him and he said Buddy was totally cool and he got an autograph and a pair of sticks.

How very gracious of him.

The problem with posting this particular clip is that there is no context, not that much (IMHO) justifies the language in any case.
