OK getting a bit anal now however,

Chad - the big 4 bar fill at around 3:20 on the Best Band version of Florentine Pogen

Vinnie - TTR, Pick me, I'm clean - just before the 10 second mark one of my fav fills ever. Glad to hear Joe Travers recreating it exactly on the recent ZPZ version.

Bozzio - I'm just going to say City of Tiny Lights, all of it.

That'll do for now :P

I find what he does a few seconds into Panty Rap to be rather amusing.

After intense research, my pick is going to have to be from 10/29/78 at the Palladium.

Vinny does this fill in The Black Page No. 2 (2:15 - 2:22). I tell ya, it's so freakin' simple. But, it really does it for me in that context of that particular performance of that song.

simple isnt the word... haha. it's far more than that. If you are serious (or not) I can somehow see your point for some reason. :)

Well, simple for Vinnie. It's certainly not his most complex fill.

Another couple of Vinnie moments

Buffalo version of Picke me, I'm clean. At the bit where the vox are 'Do you know Vinnie, he used to like me' Vinnie plays the sweetest little fill. Love it.

TTR, For the Young Sophisticate, Vinnie plays some awesome offbeat high hats on the shuffle groove prompting the 'Work out Vinnie' and 'I thought you were in love' comments from Frank.

And one more from Chad. MAJNH, Advance Romance the big fill before the guitar solo while Ike is saying 'uh, he's going to spray one to left field about now'

Of course there are 3 fills I can think of that are integral to the music. The intro to Peaches, the break in Trouble Every Day and the start of Montana (it's too fast for you?). The Zappa drummers, awesome! :mrgreen:

Just what comes to mind without hearing it again:
Ralph Humphrey on Fifty-Fifty (Overnite Sensation) just before the solos.

I love his playing on all of that album.

And, not exactly a "fill", but nevertheless: Aynsley Dunbar on the title track of Waka/Jawaka. I really like the way he is just left soloing and keeping the beat, and the lead-in to the moog solo.
It's as simple as it gets, but so nice, the way it lands.

Hands with a Hammer. Okay, I cheated. Or didn't do it right. But it does fill the space betwixt the other two songs.

I tried to find a really slick fill on Buffalo Pick Me I'm Clean but I have to call out the entire guitar solo section... because Vinnie's tempo changes and insane tom-tom/bass drum work is just too badass to break up. I swear he and Frank had some kind of connection I've never heard with other players. Damn that stuff is sick.

ok... 6:50 to 7:00 on Pick Me I'm Clean - Buffalo. That is stellar. But then he rolls into more ridiculous shanigans that makes me want to cry when he drops into that heavy vamp guitar solo with the puncutated ride cymbal portions... OH MY GOD! I get chills.

Whilst it's not a fill I go mad for hearing Ruth playing along to "Raising my lonely dentil floss, raising my lonely dentil floss"
right towards the end of Montana.

I've gone blank and can't think of any, even though there are loads out there that I love. I think I'm gonna have to come back and post as they come into my mind.

Ah, thinking of Aynsley I always thought that little fill in the Nancy and Mary Music was very impressive. Nice bit of single bass drum work. I don't mean the gorilla vocal drum noises and to be honest I can't think exacly where abouts in that piece that it is now but I think it's right before those dreadful screams by Flo and Eddie and some cool keyboard effects.

They're not exactly fills but Bozzio's rolls during the guitar solo on Muffin Man from Bongo Fury kick ass.
And Chester Thompson always provided some tasty fills.

What about the intro for Variation on the Carlos Santana Secret Chord Progression, or the whole SUNPYG series, for instance?

Also the intro to the original Peaches in Reagalia, a classic.

Remembered another favourite, the one before the solo on Road Ladies.

I love Chad Wackerman's playing on Advance Romance from Make A Jazz Noise Here, and also Heavy Duty Judy from Best Band. Sounds like somebody falling down and then back up a flight of stairs again, at a high rate of speed.
