Unbelievably talented? Indubitably.

Worst sounding snare in history? Pretty damned close. Edited by Happy Jack

He makes it look so easy I was almost imagining I could do it too.

That'd be a hell of a retirement home lounge.

Yep, great groove. Bonham and Pocaro both modified, or expanded the groove, to suit songs they played, like Fool in the Rain and Rosana.

I was lucky enough to be able to gatecrash a drum seminar with Mr Purdie back in the '90s at The Musicians' Institute in Wapping. (It was for the drummers, but I snuck in even though I was just a bass player).

I think that he makes the shuffle look so easy because (for him) it is easy! It's his default mode, like an engine at tickover. I remember watching him trading evermore impressive licks with Tony Muschamp, till he finally cried out, "Whoa, that's too much! - I'm gonna fall back and just do a bit of shuffle for a bit", which it seemed that he could do for hours on end, whilst conversing with the audience!

Everyone in the room was blown away by his playing - I'm glad that I wasn't one of the drummers, because if I was, I don't think that I would have picked up a pair of sticks ever again - after seeing someone that impossibly good, what would be the point?

There is a great video by Keith Carlock about playing shuffle, and he has a pretty decent Purdie shuffle as well as a Porcaro shuffle...

If was mentioned several months back (when the above video first appeared) that Bernard Purdie was wearing a T-Shirt with him on it...
Priceless... :D
(Quite the character, although it is hard to tell from the video).
