The ultimate sho-down.
The swingin' ness of it all causes angels to die!!!
Yes yes yes.
Drum solos don't do anything for me. Am I broken? Also, +1 for Krupa's tiny cymbal.

I can't believe I just watched Gene Krupa get his ass kicked in a drum duel. That's not something that happened very often.
Rich was reportedly very upset that he could so easily destroy Krupa in this drum battle... Krupa was his lifelong hero. Rich even took it easy (anyone who knows his playing can see that).
Krupa *was* rather old and not exactly in his prime as a drummer, but check out those vids of Rich at age 65 playing the best of his life. Krupa was a ground-breaker, but not nearly the drummer Rich was.
I call this one for Gene because he's got better rhythm and he's clearly having more fun than Buddy.

Rich kicked the shit out of Gene, not even close
it's all about the notes Gene Krupa doesn't play
also, why did Sammy Davis give them his shoes?
