Just wanted to post an awesome drum solo by a great drummer that passed away 17 years ago, I have always loved drum solos that are different then the normal bash the skins .. Very few were actually orginal 15+ years ago .. i actually liked the drum solo from a previous tour better .. but this is a great quality one

Eric Carr .. awesome drummer

carr was good, but bonham hands down if this is a drummer that died way too effing long ago contest.

Oh wait, even if this was a best alive drummer contest, bonham would still win.

If you wanna talk best dead drummer (not most influencial)- Witold "Vitek" Kiełtyka, drummer from death metal band Decapitated.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Witold_Kie%C5%82tyka

Joined the band when he was TWELVE years old. Poor guy died at 23. Tell me this is talent or what.

special bit: clip from the last show he ever played.

Check out anything of theirs, their Winds Of Creation album was recorded when he was only 15.. there were two recordings preceding it.

Carr = Decent drummer
Bonham = Excellent drummer
Vitek= Owns 'em both

and of course i realize where guys from vitek get their roots from. guy like carr and bonham. But hands down, this kid owns them both.

Try and be a little more musical next time.
It sounds like industry, not music.
And Eric Carr.....well, anyway.
Check out these singles....

There are no better drummers than Pipe Band Drummers.
One snare, that's it.
Give me a trap kit, any day.
Cages are for the weak, with few exceptions.

I think your all missing the point here folks ... it isn't who is a better drummer .. it is about drums solos that are not just about .. who plays the fastest .. i couldn't care less who is the fastest .. I get bored of someone that just hits skin .. i wanna see something that is original and different .. Tommy Lee plays original drum solos ..

Seeing, Rich and I are the only two, you must be addressing me?
Thanks for pointing that out, I should have posted different styles.
Anyway........I thought you wanted drummers, not stage theatrics?
Visually impressive maybe, musically....aah
This whole double bass thing, I mean, I get it, but what about their hands.
It not about where the music is, it's about where the music isn't!
You all keep that in mind!

Visual is great .. but what i like is being different .. Buddy Rich is a great drummer .. but just sitting there bashing the skins really bores me .. I like what Tommy did with playing drums to famous songs .. and what Eric does with the Electronic drums playing bass and chords and him playing the drums along with it .. that to me is where the music is .. you really don't have to agree with me .. and that is ok .. just hitting skins as fast as you can ... that just bores me

Bashing the skins.......Ha, Ha, Ha!
Talent never bores me
Masking talent with visual distractions does.
So, doing cover tunes matters.....I get it!
Here ya go.....great cover....great visual......

Daniel Erlandsson - Arch Enemy/Carcass

I caught this while watching AE's new DVD last night, and definitely thought it was worth adding.

And i dont give a **** what any of you think about death metal, the musicians of the genre are some of the most talented and technical musicians in the world - who are well versed in all sorts of different styles from jazz to blues to funk and everything else. Just because you dont have the mental capacity to wrap your heads around the music doesnt mean it's crap.

travis barker remix

from what i've heard they're going to be releasing that Flo-rida remix for rock band (or guitar hero - iforget which)

im not a fan of any of barker's bands, but i do like his remixes, dude has a super huge drum sound, and watchin him rock right out to the strangest stuff is kinda funny. And as much as i hate Crank That, barker's remix is INTENSE.

I've got a retarded cousin. His name is Tim.
Once we put him behind a set of drums and turned on a strobe light.
He had a epileptic fit and played a similar solo.

/good times

yeah yeah i know you guys hate metal drummers, but this guy's got some serious stuff goin on, he's put out an instructional DVD, and he's just wild... There's so much to his kit, he just pulls voice out of it all over the place.

Check this out.

..And before you ****-talk it, let's see YOU or anyone you know do it.

I present George Kollais of the band Nile.

i agree, pipe banders are killer, the guys in that video definitely know how to use their dynamics, but thats the only thing you have to explore when you're using one drum to a few, the dynamic of THOSE drums.
These guys are the exception, they've taken the pb performance into another realm that really quite turns the entire thing into a work of art that peaks volumes. that was actually the greatest pb performance ive ever seen, and if it were all like that, id take the wife to see it!

Knowing and using the dynamics of your entire kit is crucial, and i find george expresses it well, with such a large kit. Cages arent for the weak, cages are for well versed pros who want to extend the possibles of what a single snare or trap kit can offer.

That is kinda my point.
It's a lot easier with all the drums to change dynamics and or the voice.
It like a 3 string bass or a 5 string guitar, comparatively.
I maybe overemphasized the point.
A cage has it's place, no question.
Buddy Rich could have handled a cage, you just wonder if George could sound good on a trap kit!
