Furdrummer,
Thanks for sharing your comments on this thread.  Good points, I might add.

RE: Ken I'm surprised you put Buddy so far down on your list. I agree with your # 1 choice. Louie was a great soloist and my biggest influence. 

HERE'S WHAT I ORIGINALLY WROTE rEGARDING THE ORDER OF THE NAMES.

"I tried to compile my own personal top ten of all time…… and it wasn’t easy.  I have them shown in alphabetical order by their last name, because this was hard enough to limit it just list ten DRUM SOLO artists. "





Oh now I see what you where doing. You did a great job with that list.

I'm surprised at the number of drummers who don't like drum solos also. The solo is great for drummers to express themselfs and not just be timekeepers. You would think more drummers would like to be featured in a song and play a great solo.

The reason I wanted to play the drums was because of those great solos I heard back in the 70's when the drum solo was a lot more popular in rock. I still enjoy listening to and playing solos. I understand where the drummers who don't like solos are coming from. The drum solo is just not as popular in rock music like it was when I started playing drums. I'm glad it still is in jazz and big band music.


Ken I'm surprised you put Buddy so far down on your list. I agree with your # 1 choice. Louie was a great soloist and my biggest influence.

Louie Bellson influenced me the most. I loved his solos and double bass work. He's the reason I play a double bass set.

1) What paradiddle means.
2) What a double stroke roll is. Not something you have with dinner.
3) What a splash is. Not what you do in the water or a mud puddle.
