    Not a solo, but I got to see these guys duet several times. A pre-emptive fuck you to the Phil haters - dude could hold his own since the early 70's.

    You were the guy who took a piss during "Drums," right? Thanks for not stepping on my foot.

    Nah, I liked drums pretty well, the dynamic between the two of them was good. But pretty much every extended drum solo eventually gets to a point of noodling where it's just like "what song was this?". Just don't dig it.

    Not a drum solo fan really, but when I think of drum solo, this song always comes into mind:

    This thread starts and ends with Iron Butterfly. Can't even tell you all the stuff I've seen tripping while this song was playing back in HS. Possibly the greatest acid rock song ever.

    Iron Butterfly is the name of the band, dood - not the song.

    Acid Rock? Try this on for size:

    I saw the thread title and thought Neil Peart. Surprised to not see him yet . . .

    I'm well aware, though I can see how my post could give the wrong impression.

    I do love the drums though! (especially when Stanton Moore plays them)

    I couldn't find one I liked for Keith Moon.

    I saw The Who with Kenny Jones in 1982 of their first Farewell Tour. Saw them again with Simon Phillips on thier next "Farewell Tour" in 1989.. Got the t-shirt hahaha..

    Back in the late 80s I played in a band that did some Allman Bros.. In Memory of Elizabeth Reed was hella fun to play! Wish I had a recording of it.. Plenty of other stuff from my past haunting YouTube though..

    Fan of the classics myself..

    Used to love drum solos when I first started going to shows in high school. I remember seeing Tommy Aldridge do his drum solo with the Pat Travers Band and hitting the drums with his head, thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen.
    Now they just bore me. Guess I'm just a grouchy old man now.

    This is the best drummer living or dead. I've been very lucky to see some of the best. Grew up with the Buddy Rich surrounding my bed, literally.

    Brian has such a deep level that approaches Coltrane himself. Got to hang with him a few times. Amazing in all aspects of life, and beyond completely inspiring if that is possible. This man can pull you from a ditch.



    If you don't own everything that he's ever recorded on, save your soul and get it.

    If you want something familiar with a round the way making of music, check some Danilo, Patti, and Brian:

    Fun stuff here! Here's something a little different. I struggle to find something with better sound quality on utubes that's not like an hour long. I saw this duo several times before the elder died, pretty special, father and son, especially when playing with the Shankar father daughter duo. The finale is pretty mind blowing.

    More Peart. It's a little long, but there's some serious genius in it.
