Drum Boogie – Gene Krupa

March 25, 2010

The Granddaddy of all drummers big and small! A personal fave for us here at Krash Boom Bam!!! Doing what the man does best… Drum Boogie!!!! Predating and inspiring the Rockabilly scene, Gene is an inspiration to us all with his wicked feel and style. If not for his break through on Sing Sing Sing we’d all be stuck at the back of the musician heap. What makes this clip special is Gene’s solo at the end, on a Matchbox using Matches for Drumsticks!!!!!! Drum Boogie…. Drum Boogie….
