well, i'm not going to try to flame you lol. i am a huge joey and slipknot fan, but in all honestly joey's solos are not that impressive to me. he just goes fast, and slowly gets faster. the guy has massive amounts of talent and his songs show that, but the solos are lacking imo.I know, I know. I'll probably get flamed for this but...
Joey Jordisons live solos...
Probably the only '00-'09 drum solos (As of what I know).
ok, i gotta ask. what does that mean?
2020202020202020202020202020well, the way i've looked at it:
40's and before - Snare centric (ala Buddy and Gene)
50s and 60s - tom centric (ala Wipe Out)
50s - Max Roach's famous Tom-bass-tom triplets that are still emulated to this day
80s - double bass centric
90s - looping drum beats (ala we don't need no stinking drummers, we have a machine!!)
00s - hrmm.... combination of real and electronic drums centric (ala linkin park and Hey!! maybe we could teach the drummer to use our machines!!)
in other unrealated news, i'm not a fan of rap, drum loops, or electronic drums. (hehehe)
For the 80s:I was thinking about how all the different eras had their signature drum solos, Sing Sing Sing in the 40's, Topsy in the 50's, Wipe Out and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida in the 60's, Moby Dick in the 70's, and that's where I drew a blank. What great solos am I missing? Any era.
Good ob Bob...Yes I came to the same conclusion, where's OUR era's definitive drum solo? And who will be the person to create it?It is a fact, The drum solo is rare today. If you listen to pop songs, you will find that there is not a great deal of guitar leads in the music of today either. Its all about the idol singer! The closest thing that there is to a drum solo is the grooves of Hip-Hop! Wait, What goes around comes around! The drum solo will make a comeback in the near future. So keep practicing your solo moves. I do.
