Midi files[edit]

Does it disturb anyone else that the examples of "The Purdie Shuffle" are midi files that are actually and spiritually the antithesis of what groove and subtlety Mr. Purdie is known for? I'm sure someone more familiar with rules and regulations here could find a four or eight measure example of a recording that would be protected under "fair use". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.45.184.177 (talk) 09:12, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

O-o-h Child[edit]

Is it true he played drums on The 5 Stairsteps "O-o-h Child"? If so it would be notable, the drums on that song rock. 76.226.9.120 (talk) 07:27, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Birth Date[edit]

The Wikipedia article says he was born on June 11, 1941. However "Drummerworld" http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Bernard_Purdie.html gives his birthdate as June 11, 1939. The latter date is also given on Purdie's own website http://www.bernardpurdie.com/profile.htm. Think the Wikipedia date should be altered. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.0.253.177 (talk) 18:03, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
