The headless drummer

Paicey posted a video of him playing with the Buddy Rich Orchestra at the Ronnie Scott’s Club in London last year. Watch out for the quick recovery at 10:52 — blink and you’ll miss it.

    I hope I would never see the day that those guys for DP would hang up their boots because it will be very painful for all the loving fans. To infinity and beyond Mr Paice. We love you and we admire your love to your fans.

    My second gig, after Whitesnake’s first tour, at the Lyceum in London (best show and line up – sorry) was Buddy Rich at Ronnie Scott’s. Boy I wish I’d seen Paicey do his thing with Buddy’s orchestra last year. Both those skinsmen swing!

    We couldn’t really get any closer. That was awesome. It always cracks me up how he recovers from a dropped stick. There was one during the concerto in 1999. If you didn’t see it, you wouldn’t know it happened.
