My Books on Buddy Rich
Buddy Rich Discography

Buddy Rich Discography

I compiled this book in 1974. There had been little research on Buddy Rich as a 'solo' artist before this. It was a self-published item and is now very rare since only about 100 copies were printed. It has to be said however, that at 18 years of age, I was rather uninformed and rather over enthusiastic about the subject at the time! It sold originally for £1.50.

Occasionally a copy turns up on auction lists.

Buddy Rich - A Lifetime of Music

Buddy Rich - A Lifetime of Music

This book was researched with the help of my friend John Titsworth. It contains information not only about Buddy's recordings but day by day itineraries and listings of all known printed magazine articles. The book contained largely original research and remains the most comprehensive book on the 'world's greatest drummer'.
The book was first published in 1989,1991 (2nd edition) and again by the National Drum Association in the USA as a revised 2nd edition in 1995.
