I'm not a fan of heavy metal but I've seen some sick ass Joey Jordinson(sp? Slipknot drummer) solos. Also like a lot of Mike Portnoy's(Dream Theater) solos, but I'm not sure if it's because he is really good or because he has like a 74 piece drum set haha.
You like my new sig?
Carter from Dave Matthews Band has some decent solos.
you gonna do something?...or are you just going to stand there and bleed? - Wyatt Earp (Tombstone)
for theatrical purpose alone Tommy Lee needs to be mentioned for the upside down drum solo.
also i saw Jordison's solo live where they angled him so the crowd got a top view which was pretty cool.
