R.I.P. Drummer Ed Shaughnessy

Ed Shaughnessy was the drummer for the Tonbight Show with Johnny Carson. Ed might not have gotten the fame of being a drummer in a rock band. However, it must have been a joy to play with all trhe guests, all the different genres of music, I think he had a cool gig.He died Friday after suffering a heart attack at 84.

Here he trades licks with Buddy Rich...

I think the video below really highlights his skills...

The piece he probably played the most..

Thanks for the memories, may you rest in peace Ed Shaughnessy
