On the drums

February 8, 2019

Exciting news that IAN PAICE is heading up this year’s Buddy Rich Memorial Concerts. The shows take place at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in London from May 20th to 25th 2019. There are two shows each evening. The details on their site are a bit confusing, but Ian Paice will be part of the actual band alongside Gregg Potter, so play all the shows. There will be a string of guests but these have not yet been confirmed. Tickets are from £35 – £55.
Ian has always cited Buddy as a big inspiration in taking up the drums, so it should be a good evening. Bookings are already being taken at

Many of us will have fond memories of Ian’s solo spot at the Concerto concerts in 1999 and would like to see him do more in this area. In the meantime here’s an interesting short chat from Ian about Buddy Rich recorded in 2012 for an earlier memorial event by Rhythm Magazine.

Thanks to Mark Maddock for the heads up, I don’t do much Facebook! Mind you if Zuckerberg would take $8 off me a year and in return agree not to spy on my computer then I’d pay up…
