Wow!!! It's even better than the first time round Bernhard, it's a masterpiece of soloing showdown...

... this clip will become the most famous drum solos video in the world, a classic for years to come and an iconic view of many generations of drummers, this will go down in our drumming history, it's a testament of over 40 years of drum solos, in all featured styles.

Once again, Drummerworld rules, thank you Bernhard :)

Cool showdown - quite entertaining!
I've discovered a few drummers I wasn't aware of before.
Indeed some parts look/sound unreal - skills/chops in abundance.
I think choosing Aaron & Jojo for the end was a good idea, they really get the enthusiasm of drumming across.

Can't say much more than that can we? : )
Apart from the obviously amazing drumming, loved the way the video was presented as "floating" from one solo to the next. Beyond awesome and all the inspiration you could ever need to get behind the kit!

Fantastic edit, Bernhard! The drum solos are great, but we already knew that... nicely sequenced!

Man, Steve Smith's hats look like they're waving at us just after the 8 minute mark......................didn't know he kept them that "loose"

Bernhard, if I may recommend something.................personally, I think it would be a good idea to put the names of the drummers when they come up.

I think it would help the "Newer" drummers to identify these legends..............also, like I posted earlier, I don't know who some of them are.

Yes he does.

I can't see the video right now but I think I know what you're referring to.

A lot of times during his solos, he will give his hats a quick flip to keep keep swinging like that.

I've seen a couple videos where Tony Williams did this too.

Speaking of which, I was surprised Tony wasn't in the montage!

Anyone else think it'd be cool for the forum members to put together a video like this? we all do like a 15 sec solo and have someone edit it all together!

Oh, and fan-freaking-tastic video by the way! Thanks Bernhard!
