    I'm not a soloist. The guys in the band don't even like me dragging out the end of a song. That's always been a fun part to me. I just tell em I'm making my statement with a roll around the toms or whatever and it's never too long. I love hearing a good ending.

    Always like that Blinded Me With Science song Jedi

    IGDV is probably the most famous rock drum solo of all time.
    In it's context ,it's quite melodic and very well structured.
    It's main issue is that it was overplayed and is now a cliche.
    Makes it a bit like the guitar intro to Stairway to Heaven.
    Too much airplay.

    It may be quite "melodic" as you put it, but, a 20 minute drum solo? It's a bit boring to my ears. YMMV.

    Agree...more fun to play than to listen too. That goes for Buddy Rich as well. Probably the greatest soloist ever but after about the 4 minute mark it's like OK enough already! IMHO drums are good for demonstrating ones physical prowess but just seem to lack the ability to tell a story the way a melodic instrument can.

    all the best...

    Inna was quite well composed using very classical drum composition.
    Melody ,use of question and answer themes,and tempo changes.
    If you're looking for blast beats and 32nd note bass drum riffs ,then it may not be your cup of tea.

    But it holds up very well historically.
