5.0 out of 5 stars About time for the Rock Drummers to get a solo DVD!
Carmine Appice was the perfect choice as a host for this collection of rock drum solo clips. He adds the right amount of background, stories, and respect for nearly all of the drummers featured here. He was there when most of these guys got started or made it big. As a rock drummer and a fan of classic rock, this was worth the wait. Some may have seen these clips on...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but could have been better
I know, no one can list everyone's favorite drummer, but no Buddy Rich? Gene Krupa but no Buddy Rich? Then there's Ian Paice, one of the most talented drummers around, and we get him in a groove featuring Richie Balckmore? It was more of a guitar solo than a drum solo. Sandy Nelson? You've gotta be kidding me. Then we get a drum sync of Ron Bushy? And Carmine didn't...

5.0 out of 5 stars About time for the Rock Drummers to get a solo DVD!, February 12, 2008
This review is from: Classic Rock Drum Solos DVD (DVD)
Carmine Appice was the perfect choice as a host for this collection of rock drum solo clips. He adds the right amount of background, stories, and respect for nearly all of the drummers featured here. He was there when most of these guys got started or made it big. As a rock drummer and a fan of classic rock, this was worth the wait. Some may have seen these clips on YouTube - get this DVD so you can watch them any time, and with much greater clarity. I hadn't seen the clip with Ian Paice before, and I thought I'd seen them all. The Carl Palmer solo is just incredible, and it's from the early days of ELP, when he played a Gretsch round badge kit. The interview with Ginger Baker is hilarious; the solo by Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker may be the best thing on the disc, and that's including Neil Peart's mesmerizing solo from 2004. Bring on Volume II!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for any drummer., February 12, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Classic Rock Drum Solos DVD (DVD)
Vinnie Appice has gathered an impressive and unbelievable collection of archive drum solo performances. The disk includes what is possibly the only filmed solo by Keith Moon, a clip of Iron Butterfly's Ron Bushy from an old German TV show, a British TV interview with Ginger Baker when he was with Cream, a black & white clip of The Ventures playing "Wipeout" at a concert in Japan, a clip of himself playing with Lesley West on the old 1970's "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" TV show and more. He even includes the Santana/Michael Shrieve segment from the Woodstock movie. Something that I assumed would have been contractually impossible. He also includes lesser-known drummers like Jethro Tull's Clive Bunker and the late Cozy Powell. Appice knew most of these artists, including the great Sandy Nelson, and introduces each clip while sharing a personal story about his acquaintances. This DVD is so well done that it is not only a must-have for any percussion enthusiast, college music departments should add it to their film collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic example of great heroes, August 11, 2008
This review is from: Classic Rock Drum Solos DVD (DVD)
Finally I have received this DVD and I think is a MUST for every kind of drummer,this DVD hosted by Carnine Appice is a classic example of what every drummer would like to see............ to learn everything !!!
Classic and cool rock drum solos by wonderful artists: Ginger Backer,Danny
Seraphine,Carl Palmer,Ian Paice,Neil Peart,Cozy Powel and more......
For me the greatest solos are by two legendary Heroes of the drumming:
DON BREWER (Grand Funk Railroad) and STEVE SMITH (Jurney),however this is a great DVD !!!
Thank you Hudson Music and Producers Siegel,Wallis and Klauber.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to Watch, February 2, 2011
This review is from: Classic Rock Drum Solos DVD (DVD)
I bought this to see other drummers in action. A great selection of solos, but certainly not a do-all definitive list. A few of these were not really solos, so I wouldn't classify them at all as such, much less a 'classic'. These would be better suited in a documentary of the history of drumming/solos. It all picks up nicely into some classic rock bands as the DVD rolls along. Fun to watch. When they make a Classic 2 I'll get it.

I know, no one can list everyone's favorite drummer, but no Buddy Rich? Gene Krupa but no Buddy Rich? Then there's Ian Paice, one of the most talented drummers around, and we get him in a groove featuring Richie Balckmore? It was more of a guitar solo than a drum solo. Sandy Nelson? You've gotta be kidding me. Then we get a drum sync of Ron Bushy? And Carmine didn't know it was drum synced? (I think Carmine called it lip sync.) Keith Moon was a respected drummer (love his I Can See for Miles playing--refusing to fall into a 4/4 groove), but we're shown a bunch of noise and goldfish in a drum?

Absolutely loved Powell's clasical work! And Neil Pert mixing melodic percussion with drums. Tremendous. Danny Seraphine's solo was excellent (you could see Terry Kath having to count the measures to know when to come back in). Carl Palmer show why he's one of the finest ever. I was surprised to see Don Brewer's solo, and it was inovative (head on the snare?). Mel Taylor's solos are always clean and technically sound, and of course, the host, Carmine Appice, was excellent. I wish we could have seen his solo on "Break Song." (The whole cut is excellent).

Still, no Buddy Rich?

This is okay but I personally think it gets a little boring after awhile. My husband listens to it in segments. Otherwise it's a sensory overload.

expected the solos to show more of drummers hand movement. it was more like a video to entertain, not showing their drumming skills. alot of the early footage was not necessary; was not focused on drumming.
