RIP Ed Shaughnessy.

One of the all-time drumming greats has passed away. Ed Shaughnessy spent most of his career with Doc Severinson's band on the American Tonight TV show but in his early days he was part of Charlie Ventura's legendary Bop For The People band. He was one of the most sort after drum tutors and the favourite drummer of many more well known percussionists including Buddy Rich.
I think I'll listen to those old Ventura tracks again.
Ed Shaughnessy died on May 24, 2013 aged 84.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.
Obituary.
