Neil's solos just get more complex and dynamic and musical all the time...

I still maintain the solo from ESL is the best.

Neil had the power and the passion back then, probably because he was a lot younger  tongue.gif

Not that the newer solos are bad, i just think hearing him really lean into the tom fills back then was awesome

Exit Stage Left hands down!!!!!!
It`s the, "Tightest" solo he`s ever done...in my opinion.
Also the fact that I `ve never seen him play that one live helps too!!

Ya`ll take care

Had to go with "O Baterista." The solos in "Different Stages" and "R30" both have moments that sound to me like (*gasp* can it be?) mistakes. I know even "The Professor" is human and doesn't play perfectly, and I'd rather have him loose and occasionally flawed rather than overdubbed into perfection as on ESL. But I think "O Baterista" manages to capture that "real" feeling but also caught Neil on a night where he was in fine form.

Dumb question.. what about Der Trommler from R30?

I picked Rhythm Method from DS. Second was O'Baterista.

I love "the rhythm method" on Different Stages Live. Awesome with the xylophone and time changes.

I really like his older solos better since he doesn't start and stop as much. So probably a toss up between ATWAS and ESL solo.

O'Baterista.

I love the way he explodes into the solo after Leave That Thing Alone.
