    RIP Louie Bellson

    I had the pleasure to see Louie Bellson in concert in 1991. I didn't want to go, but a college class required it...I'd never heard of him before and I didn't think some old drummer could be interesting. Boy was I wrong! Possibly the best concert I've ever attended. He played a 23 minute drum solo. I know because I timed it!

    He passed away on Saturday. Here is a little more about him .

    Here is a 1957 drum solo and then one from probably about the same time I saw him. INCREDIBLE!!
