The Buddy Rich Study Niche

A Virtual Tribute To The Master Drumset Artist

Latest Updates: {{PUBLISH AUTO[[DATE("Long Date")]]}}

I developed this site to celebrate the greatest drummer of all time, Buddy Rich. Please browse around and let me know what you think.

Notes - 8/7/97

Hello everyone. Been awhile since the last update. I've spent time away from the website to enjoy the summer. I hope you're all doing well.

Obviously, the move to SimpleNet was accomplished. Indeed, there was not even _one hour_ of down time! I've been quite satisfied with the service, price, and speed provided by my new home, and encourage anyone looking for a web host to click above for more information.

Administrative Notes

1) I'm about to enter another flurry of BR trading activity. Again, sometimes, I just have to take a break or I'd go nuts. Anyone interested in trading video, audio, or any other Buddy Rich related items should send me email. My BR collection list is available on request. Be forewarned, however, that many items on the list are protected under copyright, and I don't intend to compromise my position as a responsible Buddy Rich authority by engaging in illegal trading activity.

2) I have come to the conclusion that I simply cannot answer every piece of email I receive. Be assured that I read EVERY LETTER, but a personalized response is no longer viable due to the extraordinary amount of mail that comes in. If it's really that important to you, keep bugging me, and you'll get an answer. I'm sorry it has to be this way, but there's just one of me and thousands of you! I do appreciate every letter that comes in, and thank you for taking the time to write. When I spend 10-15 hours per week answering each letter in detail, it becomes a chore, not a hobby. To those of you persistent enough to FORCE a reply, I thank you for your tenacity. You *will* get an answer!

Software Stuff

Software I use to navigate and/or build the site:

: I recently tried out MS Explorer 3.1, and I like it so much I switched from Netscape. Give it a shot!

CoolEdit: This is the software responsible for creating almost all of the files on this site. There are other sound editors out there, perhaps even much better or more feature laden. I've read about Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge, and it is one of the recognized leaders in the audio sculpting arena, but it also costs $495. The fully registered version of CoolEdit costs just $50, and has much more capabilities than I've demonstrated here.
