    Probably not, as the thread's instigator recently complained about "who the hell he [V.] is". But I'll just betcha he's an expert on John French and Daniel Denis and Wyatt and LOTS of other widely acknowledged drummers.

    Wasn't Vital Information his band? He also had a few collaborative albums; two with Scott Henderson and Victor Wooten and two with Stu Hamm and Frank Gambale. There's another one with Jerry Goodman, Howard Levy and Oteil Burbridge. I think they were all on the same record label, for which Steve seemed to be the house drummer.

    Virgil Donati - "In This Life" and "Serious Young Insects"


    Top quality prog-fusion.

    Furio Chirico and Friends

    Fusion that leans a bit more toward jazz.

    Marco Minneman - EEPS

    An interesting mixture of some pretty experimental stuff. Not what you would expect from a fusion, prog-metal and metal drummer.

    Chris Cutler - Solo is another one of "drum solos only" albums, although it features quite a wide range of "percussive instruments" from ping pong balls to cocktail mixers, all played and manipulated by Cutler in live performances. Surprisingly listenable (in about the same way as side B of Henry Cow's Unrest is listenable, I guess).

    Hollenbeck is a great artist. I have most of his large ensemble recordings, and they're all filled with superb music.

    The greatest drummer solo albums of all time IMO:

    Narada Michael Walden- Garden of Love Light
    Billy Cobham-Spectrum
    Bruford-One of a Kind
    Simon Phillips-Protocol II
    Lenny White- Astral Pirates
    Alphonse Mouzon-Mind Transplant
    Harvey Mason-Earth Mover
    Cozy Powell-Over The Top
    Dave Weckl - Master Plan

    The album that PETA boycotted because of Erskine's coat.

    Billy Cobham's 'Spectrum' is widely recognised as a classic.



    I'm surprised Cobham was not mentioned earlier!! His output has met with decidedly mixed reviews in recent years but he is still phenomenal!

    Unless someone has already mentioned him then I think we're overlooking possibly the most commercially successful drummer (maybe not as successful as PC - I don't know) and that's Dave Grohl. His first Foo Fighters release was a completely solo affair (with just a few minor contributions from others). I love Grohl's drumming - particularly on Nevermind and albums he did with QOTSA and Killing Joke - and I like some Foo songs especially Monkey Wrench.

    I think that one should get an asterisk, since it's really a Carla Bley album. I think they put Nick's name on the front cover because they reckoned that EMI/Columbia would break out the check books for a "Pink Floyd solo album".

    Haven't played the Erskine disc in years. Also like his CD Sweet Soul, and November w/ Abercrombie and Johnson.

    "Spectrum" is essential fusion. I also have "The Funky Thide of Sings" (sic) which I don't like as much. Any other essential Cobham albums?

    Yes, that was a supergroup of sorts- I think it's the first two I have, again on record.

    Most of the ones I thought of have already been mentioned. Has Ginger Baker been listed? Here is an odd one some may not have heard:
