Unbelievably talented? Indubitably.

Worst sounding snare in history? Pretty damned close.

Yep, great groove. Bonham and Pocaro both modified, or expanded the groove, to suit songs they played, like Fool in the Rain and Rosana.

I was lucky enough to be able to gatecrash a drum seminar with Mr Purdie back in the '90s at The Musicians' Institute in Wapping. (It was for the drummers, but I snuck in even though I was just a bass player).

I think that he makes the shuffle look so easy because (for him) it is easy! It's his default mode, like an engine at tickover. I remember watching him trading evermore impressive licks with Tony Muschamp, till he finally cried out, "Whoa, that's too much! - I'm gonna fall back and just do a bit of shuffle for a bit", which it seemed that he could do for hours on end, whilst conversing with the audience!

Everyone in the room was blown away by his playing - I'm glad that I wasn't one of the drummers, because if I was, I don't think that I would have picked up a pair of sticks ever again - after seeing someone that impossibly good, what would be the point?
Why brand they us with bass? With baseness? Bastardy? Bass, bass?

He IS. The man. Apparently played on more the 4000 albums and the most recorded drummer in history.
Always expect the worst. That way, you'll be pleasantly surprised 50% of the time.

I thought John 'JR' Robinson had taken over that little position.
But then again, all the worlds most recorded drummers make that claim on their websites. :D

There is a great video by Keith Carlock about playing shuffle, and he has a pretty decent Purdie shuffle as well as a Porcaro shuffle...

If was mentioned several months back (when the above video first appeared) that Bernard Purdie was wearing a T-Shirt with him on it...
Priceless... :D
(Quite the character, although it is hard to tell from the video).

Yep, a very influential drummer, and certainly a legend in his own, modest, mind. Who do you think gave him the moniker "Pretty"? Himself of course.

Apparently at sessions he used to put up a sign saying, "You done hired the hit maker".

Not sure I could talk to the guy for more than 2 secs but I can listen to him all day.

Yep. I suspect we wouldn't want to talk with a lot of musicians whose abilities we admire. As dear old Frank Zappa put it, "Shut up and play yer guitar"...
