You guys remember the truck ad that Ludwig did in the 80's? I don't remember this one. Too bad Bonzo isn't on it and neither is Ian Paice. Bill Ward isn't on it either. Did Buddy Rich play Ludwigs during this time period or was he playing Rogers or Slingerland then?

Yes - awesome. I always wanted to confirm that Bonzo was not there, I've seen his name associated with this photo for some reason. I think the only photo I had of this was a tiny low-quality scan so this is really great. Very cool and mustaches galore. Thanks David! Anyone know what year this is? Buddy was probably playing Slingerland (but almost done with them), I'm guessing this is mid 70's? '75?
