Haha really? Crazy.

Phil Collins, Ginger Baker, and Roger Taylor also do very musical solos.
This could only be more awesome if it had tits and was on fire.

I just think solos should maintain some type of rhythm. When drummers just start showing off chops and sound dynamics, I usually just change or fast forward.

It should be organized and have flawless transition, unique, and not too long!
