Default The Greatest YouTube Drum Solo on Earth

...

Post your link on this thread.

Not your top 5,
not your best 3
....just 1-
that you think is the impactful thing you every heard on drums.

Could be a known guy, an unknown, the guy next door... metal, polka, jazz... 1927, 37, 2017 whenever/whatever..



BUT JUST 1 that you think is the bees knees

Not just a solo, but a lesson into what Rock and Roll is all about.

The best, really tough ... Whenever there is Joe Morello on drums, it's aweseome, jaw-dropping. Same with Simon Phillips and Steve Jordan. Hmmm... But I'll go with Keith Carlock this time, 'cause it's groovy, entertaining, creative, simply put: great drumming - and really 100% drum solo and not a part of any other musical performance.

Awesome!- Another player out of my bag of favorites.. Would be interesting to see a variety of musical opinions, though

Some people display a tremendous lack of humour.... :-P


(That hihat-problem could have happened to anyone with any brand - of course)

TRJr with his usual goodness plus a true attempt to challenge himself to lose track of time although it doesn't work. (shrugs)

That's probably the most impressive series of solos I've ever seen. That ending where he lays down that monster groove is epic.

Lol yep, a friend of mine calls him a caveman probably because of his energy and very expressive facial contortions ;D
Did you notice Mike Mangini in the audience.

Yeah, his name is Dave Dicenso. He's an astonishing player and teacher. He's professor of drums at Berkley I believe. http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Dave_DiCenso.html

Abe! Great to "see" you!

Jason, my man! Hope all goes good with you... Im a very occasional & random presence here now, but I do miss some of you special folk!

Oh yes of course. This is a classic! I always thought of JTW as the Charlie Parker of drums... doesn't help that theres a physical resemblance too..give or take a few pounds.

Of all the performances ever - on any of the Modern Drummer series- Dave's was the one that got me in the gut like nothing else ( Nate Townsley's is a distant second... )

Monster pulse, creativity, fluidity, effortless power & total dynamic control.


..... through all the pyros, he never lets us lose the head bob.

Totally agree. And we must have similar tastes. I also really love Nate Townsley's performance.
