Buddy Rich – Folk Singer?

SKF NOTE: I knew there was a time in Buddy Rich’s life when he stopped playing drums, and tried to make it as a singer and dancer. But listening just now to Les Paul tell a story of Buddy Rich opening at The Blue Angel in NYC tap dancing on a drum and playing folk songs is news to me. Plus, there’s a guy in the audience who backs up Les Paul’s story, telling Paul he was at The Blue Angel the night Buddy Rich opened and folded his folk singer career.

Actually, on his 1999 Stick It album, Buddy and a guitarist recorded one of my favorite versions of Bein’ Green.
