America's Ace Drummer Man Gene Krupa

New Releases and News in the World of Gene Krupa...

UPDATE!!! January 27, 2017: I apologize for the extremely long delay in updates (actually many years!). Those of you who know me know that I have had numerous critical health issues in the past few years. I hope to eventually completely overhaul the website. However, that may be some time down the road as I need to purchase speech-to-text software to assist with typing, due to my loss of strength. I fully admit to being rather "behind the times" when it comes to modern website design, so I will need to have someone help with the coding. I want to be sure that any redesign is worthy of Gene's memory.

In the meantime, I am very active in numerous online drum forums. You can find me on Facebook. You can also find me and my posts of drumming photos, videos, etc in the Facebook groups for Gene Krupa, Louie Bellson, Jo Jones, and The Great Drummers Group. I'm also an admin in the Buddy Rich group Buddy's Lounge.
