Badfinger - Baby Blue (Kenny Rogers Show 1972) - such a great band and sadly, long forgotten. Both songwriters committed suicide, one in 1975 and the other in 1983.

Yes is een progressieve rockband, in 1968 opgericht in Londen. Kenmerkend voor de muziek zijn de complexe ritmes en harmonieën, de virtuositeit van de muzikanten, de meerstemmige zang en de mystieke teksten. Sommigen zullen daarbij de hoge, ietwat engelachtige zang van Jon Anderson willen noemen en het aparte, zware basgeluid van Chris Squire. Het mystieke aspect van Yes wordt vaak geaccentueerd door de vele hoesontwerpen die kunstenaar Roger Dean voor Yes heeft gemaakt.

The fabulous Buddy Rich

I got to meet Buddy Rich at a Schmitt music visit/seminar in Edina MN back in 1971 there were only 5 of us there.

BADfinger

Badfinger had it all from appearance but deep down they were betrayed by management and sadly lost two members of the band through suicide. Their music still plays on. Badfinger was a wonderful band.

Gene Krupa ----Neil went to this guy to learn more about the art of drumming when Neil was already a great drummer!

Gene Krupa ----Buddy Rich enjoyed more notoriety, but this guy was just as good.
