Out of the fusion drummers, I particularly like (besides Tony) Billy Cobham, Dave Weckl, and Dennis Chambers. They each play different and have unique styles of soloing.

Drum solos today come in a about as many different forms as there are different kinds of people. But, it hasn't always been that way. The drum solo has evolved just like any other instrument.

I suppose you could go all the way back to the days of cavemen and reconstruct some kind of archeological history of people hitting sticks on logs and stuff like that, but I'm just a simple dude, so I'll just go back to the 1940s and into the 50s to start with.
