Neil Peart's "Der Trommeler" (five years of german and yet I'm still positive I did not spell that right).
I'm a big fan of the composed solo and very much of his drumming.

I'd also have to say "tank" from emerson, lake, and palmer.

I love this one of Buddy Rich and his band backing up Frank Sinatra. His solo is so amazing and his left hand is unbelievable.

Buddy Rich's on West Side Story Medley, and Neil Peart's solo from Exit....Stage Left will always be my two favorites.

Steve Smith's "Swing Pulse" and "Thank You Mr. Williams" are awesome as well.

And Terry Bozzio's "Maya". Great piece!

My favorite solo is in soul sacrifice from the original woodstock. Michael Shrieve is a great drummer.

Donati's solo on Ataxaria. Playing over that foot ostinato would make me like ... warp to another dimension, then I'd be like "ughhhhh" and my head would explode. Exactly like that.
