Drummers battle for supremacy on The Tonight Show in 1978

Drummers Buddy Rich and Ed Shaughnessy were absolute masters of their craft. There is absolutely nothing not to like about this clip.

Two of the greatest drummers of all time (Ed Shaughnessy and Buddy Rich) took center stage on a 1978 episode of The Tonight Show in a pitched drum duel amid the soaring licks of Doc Severensin and The Tonight Show Band.

There is absolutely nothing not to like about this clip.

We may have to call that a draw.
