Buddy Rich Was A Mean Man

Buddy Rich

Buddy Rich


To get this joke, you probably have to know about the legendary unpopularity of Buddy Rich amongst his band…

A horn player who had been playing with Buddy Rich for many years came back from vacation to hear a rumour that Buddy had died. He didn’t quite believe it, so he phoned Buddy’s wife and said “Can I speak to Buddy please?”

Buddy’s wife said, “I’m sorry, Buddy passed away last week.”

“Oh, I’m sorry to hear that,” he said, and hung up.

A couple of hours later, he called her again. “Is Buddy there please?”

“No, I’m sorry. Buddy’s no longer with us,” said Buddy’s wife. And hung up the phone.

Ten minutes later, he called Buddy’s wife again. “Can I speak to Buddy please?” he said.

She recognised his voice, and said: “Look, I’ve told you before, BUDDY’S DEAD!” And slammed down the phone.

Two minutes later, and the phone rang again… “Is Buddy at home please?” the horn player asked.

Buddy’s wife was furious. “I’m not going to tell you again, Buddy is dead.. D. E. A. D. DEAD. Why do you keep ringing me to ask for Buddy???!!!!”

He thought for a moment, and said: “I just love hearing you say it.”

Pomplamoose — “Beat It” by Michael Jackson

Pomplamoose is the finest and most talented example of “videosong,” a musical medium with 2 rules:
1. What you see is what you hear (no post-sync voice or instrument).
2. If you hear it, you’ll see it

Pomplamoose is the most recognizable artist in this medium, for good reason.

Van Halen tour has just been canceled!

leave a comment »

Man….What a waste. I went to the first show in Atlanta about 3 weeks ago and it was awesome. I have heard rumors that Van Halen was having trouble but I just assumed that Eddie had gotten himself together…. Guess not. What a waste…..

From TMZ.com

Van Halen Tour Unhinged

Posted Mar 2nd 2008 5:57PM by TMZ Staff

Sources tell TMZ the Van Halen tour has just been canceled!

We’re told arrangements are being made right now to cancel hotel stays for the tour — which was scheduled to continue through April 19th. Sources tell us the reason for the cancellation is Eddie — that he is having “issues.”

The last three shows had already been canceled. There have been reports that Eddie was out of it during concerts — and video of recent performances in which his guitar playing was atrocious.

Reps could not be reached for comment.
