Finally a Drum Solo That Doesn't Suck

We're always on the lookout for talented people here at People Liking People. That's not to take away from those of you who are not talented. Believe me, we love you all.

Very often we run across these videos of drum solos that are supposedly the best and to be honest most of them are terrible. Very repetitive, no groove, they really put us to sleep. But today we stumbled upon this guy:

Meet Derek Roddy. His playing is just so smooth and groovy. It's probably the first drum video where we actually sat through the whole thing. He changes it up enough to make it interesting, and his technical ability is just astounding. Unfortunately he used to play for a band called Hate Eternal. And Hate is the complete opposite of what we're about. There was a lot of debate about whether or not to feature him on our site, but we eventually felt that his talent was good enough to make us suspend our principles for just a moment.
