Ian Scheffler : i've been watching this video a few times the past couple of weeks. and last night my friend spontaneously invited me to the Green Mill jazz club in chicago at lawrence ave and broadway. shortly after arriving the host announces the band. and sure enough i hear the name Bernard "Pretty" Purdie. after they finish playing mr Purdie walks past me. i reach out to shake his hand and i say to him, "they aint nothing but rebound!"

Pat The Batman Fan : I wish Bernard Purdie could be in every instructional video.

carlmanu : Bonham brought me here.

Mark Moon : Who was the biggest fan of Mr. Purdie? "He was the biggest influence on my playing style" Guessed yet? No? Not surprised. You probably wouldn't. It's Phil 'Philty Animal' Taylor from MOTORHEAD. Just shows to go ya! Got to say, the love for what Mr. Purdie does is infectious. Great to watch, love it.

bulletxt : Possibly one of youtube's best video of all time. No doubts.

Louis Peake : AMMASPLAYNTUYAH

Déjà Siku : Less than 45 seconds in and I already love this guy. What a sweet soul.

goggles789 : Someone needs to make a YouTube Poop with this RIGHT NOW

Alex Maas : This guy is insane on the drums, and is probably the happiest man in the world, but let's face it; getting lessons from him would be a waste of money.

minnesotajack1 : Dear Mr. Purdie I am worried about those ghost notes. Please advise.

Don Ventura : All that 'splaining and I didn't learn a damn thing lol. This has to be one of my favorite drumming videos of all time.

BAT BOY : im happy he splain'd that to me

Steve Upisleeve : I like that too, BP. That's as groove and as sweet as it gets. His entire demeanor and style delivers REAL entertainment. It amazes me how his snare & toms seem to reveal no dampers, yet he gets his snare to whisper both rhythms & accents in two distinct & different voices. THAT'S artistic control par excellance.' Brilliant.

BairyHalls : 161 people don't know about the triplet

Logan Finn : Holy polyrhythms

Matt : It’s also *HAAAALF* notes

San DearCubus : "Don worry about those ghost notes, they nothing but rebound to make it sound and feel.... GOOD." He's a legend
