A few years ago I posted about drummer Dick Richards being the oldest Rock drummer in the world at 85 ,I just came across him and Bill Haley's original saxophone player Joey Ambrose playing Rudy`s Rock last year the announcer said he was 94 check out his drumming how many people can play drums like that at 94.

Sad to read that Dick Richards died aged 95 in July, ironically he did not play on Bill Haley`s records instead a session drummer called Billy Gusack played on Rock Around The Clock ,but Dick played drums for live performances .Dick played with the reformed Comets with a genuine 1955 line up of the Comets, he was still playing Rock music at the age of 94 ,how many other drummers are doing that.
