Drumming That Inspires The Soul

I’ve been searching youtube.com for the best, most inspiring drum solos I could find. So, here are a few of my favorites. Lemme know what you think:

Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd and Dave Weckl (three of the best drummers alive today)

Buddy Rich (1964) with the Harry James Orchestra (the highest paid drummer of that time, doing a brilliantly executed drum solo)

Drum Battle Between Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa (with Sammy Davis, Jr. looking on) (drum solos to the tune of Sing Sing Sing!!!)

Buddy Rich vs Animal of Sesame Street (this one is insane!!!)

Japanese Fusion Drummer Akira Jimbo (my current favorite drummer, with a mixture of acoustic and triggered electronic drums)

And a young Tony Royster, Jr. – (an amazing performance, especially for his age!!!)
