Here’s Danny Carey from Tool giving us a pretty cool solo.
Here’s Thomas Lang playing on an electric set for a change. He is using his TD-20 at the 2007 Montreal Drumfest. The camera angle really allows you to watch his feet go!
Here’s a how to for some cool stick tricks compliments of Thomas Lang. The tricks are impressive enough and he breaks them down for you over the first part of the video. In the second part, he throws them all together with a cool beat.
Here’s another solid solo by Dave.
John shows us what speed means in this video. This short clip is taken from the movie The Song Remains the Same by Led Zeppelin.
This guy sure might not look like John Bonham, but for 12 years old this kid gives him a run for his money. 12 year old Ryan Birbeck gives us his rendition of Moby Dick.
One more solo by Mike; This one’s on two drum sets. About half way through the song he gets up and moves to another seat to his right. The drums on the rigiht are a bit deeper sounding, which allows him to play some of his darker stuff in the same set.
So if you wanted any proof that Mike’s the devil, look no further than this video. With his long hair and crazy chops Mike really lets loose on this drum solo.
Here’s just a cool video of Mike Rocking out to his song Fatal Tragedy. Good beat, but even better performance. About 16 seconds in he looks like the drumming devil. The same intesnsity can be seen about 1:04. He’s really having fun with it.
Here’s another informational video from Mike Portnoy’s Liquid Drum Theater DVD. In this clip, Mike breaks down the intro to the song Paradigm Shift, which he invented on the spot. It begins with a simple pattern that alternates between the snare and base: 2 snare, 2 bass, 6 snare, 2 bass. Looks simple, but sounds great.
