Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/21/19

I consider every drummer that ever played before me an influence, in every way.”   —   Buddy Rich

(I was a little surprised to see that this is the first Buddy Rich quote used in the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  It’s long overdue, but we welcome Buddy to the Cryptoquote Club!  He was a fantastic drummer, and quite a character.   I remember seeing him on the Merv Griffin Show, the Mike Douglas ShowJohnny Carson, and also on shows like The Muppet Show, Happy Days, and Here’s Lucy.  He played with a lot of the big bands in the ’30s and ’40s, and was also leader of his own bands.  He also did a lot of sessions work with a number of top musicians.  He was a bit of a tough guy too, both professionally and in his personal life.  He had fights with Frank Sinatra, but they became lifelong friends.  Seeing his name brought back a lot of great memories!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    At first glance, I wanted to end this EVERY DAY. A minor adjustment! By contrast, today’s Celebrity Cipher ate me alive …

    I was fortunate to meet three top Drummers in my life. I played (¿) them also. I was a notch or two below average but knew enough to understand who was really good…..

    The Drummers above and I agreed Buddy Rich, with almost no debate, He was the Best Ever….
    Case closed!

    Thumps up to you for featuring him☆
