Drumming Mentor Freddie Gruber Passes

Okay so I hadn't heard Freddie Gruber play but I knew of his reputation as a drum guru (teacher/tutor somehow seems inadequate) and going by the various on-line tributes he was quite a guy. Modern Drummer says it all here - Drumming Mentor Freddie Gruber Passes - but I love this YouTube clip.
Freddie was 84. RIP.
