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

But, I don't think any arranger should ever write a
drum part for a drummer because if a drummer can't
create his own Interpretation of the chart and he plays
everything that's written,
he becomes mechanical; he has no freedom.
- Buddy Rich

I can think of a lot better things to do with my hands
than to cut them up on the rim of a drum.
- Buddy Rich

But I think that any young drummer starting out today
should get himself a great teacher and learn all there
is to know about the instrument that he wants to play.
- Buddy Rich

I think at one time every drummer wanted to play like
Krupa or wanted to win a Gene Krupa drum contest.
This is the big inspiration for drummers and naturally
it has to be the same way for me.
- Buddy Rich

If he's a true symphony artist, he knows better than
that because he knows that the only truly creative
musician is the jazz musician.

I think the drummer should sit back there and play some drums,
and never mind about the tunes.
Just get up there and wail behind whoever is sitting
up there playing the solo.
And this is what is lacking, definitely lacking in music today.
- Buddy Rich

Every drummer that had a name, had a name because of his individual playing.
He didn't sound like anybody else, So everybody that I ever listened to,
in some form, influenced my taste.
- Buddy Rich

And, well of course, Count Basie, and I think all of
the black bands of the late thirties and early forties,
bands with real players.
They had an influence on everybody, not just drummers.
- Buddy Rich

I mean, I think I liked every band I ever played in
because each band was different,
each band had a different concept, and each band leader was different...
different personalities and musical tastes.
- Buddy Rich

To have everything written for you...
It's not really creating.
That's why I think symphony drummers are so limited.
They 're limited to exactly what was played a hundred
years before them by a thousand other drummers.
- Buddy Rich

I play a percussion instrument, not a musical saw;
it needs no amplification.
Where it's needed, they put a microphone in front of the bass drum.
But, I don't think it's necessary to play that way every night.
- Buddy Rich

So, to come In with a set routine it's something I've never believed in.
It should depend on how you feel, because you play what you feel.

Almost everything I've done, I've done through my own creativity.
I don't think I ever had to listen to anyone else to learn how to play drums.
I wish I could say that for about ten thousand other drummers.
- Buddy Rich

But, when you have to resort to turntables,
trick lights, flashing lights, fire and all that,
you're actually saying, I need this because what I
do is not all that together.
- Buddy Rich

So, practice, particularly after you've attained a job,
any kind of job, like playing with a four piece band,
that's...
an opportunity to develop.
- Buddy Rich

And, you know, I think the original recording of Ravel's Bolero,
probably whoever played percussion on that,
will never have It played better than that.
- Buddy Rich

and they play the same thing.
So, there's no great challenge In being a classical drummer.
