Incredible ! Such a great drummer.

It seems strange to me that I had heard him only one time live, a few years ago with his own quartet, but though he had played with almost everybody, I don´t remember that i would have seen him in other seetings.

He was fantastic in any style from the 40´s on, with Lester, Bird, Bud, with Trane......

First time I saw him was a Parker tribute in 1980 and the most recent was when he had turned 80 and playing like a 30 year old. Incredible, must be on monkey glands. Happy Birthday Mr Haynes !

It still seems weird to have to think "the late Dwayne Burno". :(

Amazing that he is still going strong.

I've always wondered if anyone knows of anyone else who knew Bird or played with him and is still topside. Is Roy the sole survivor? Are there any living kids?
