Black and Blue from OU812 featured some of the finest Paiste ride’s sound
Yes I somehow forgot about that song and it's probably my favourite from the album. Feels so good is another one, lots of good AVH ride cymbal in both.

Everything about this is very cool (especially Mr Santana and the ladies) and I've always liked the ride cymbal in the fade out at the end.

I have to endorse that 'ride cymbal' song:


And he still can play that ride pattern. The ones who tried know what I mean.

I remember liking this song, and the ride cymbal sound. Like the way it sits in the mix. Haven't listend to this in a long while. K Custom probably.

jim gordon - why does love have to be so sad - live version.
You beat me to it. Took me years to get that down. To me, this version is the mack daddy of all ride work I've ever heard.
Look at all of the comments made about Jim Gordon on this YT post - they almost outnumber the comments about Clapton:

Might be a 602, but it ain't no flat ride. Check it @2:30, 5:09 & 6:02...

Wow. Sounds ok, but I can’t understand why they didn’t stick with the record feel and tempo.

I still say that song sounds better if you change the playback speed to ".75".

Let’s hear it for the Professor’s ding, ding a ding ding, ding, ding a ding a ding ride pattern from nearly every class Rush song :)

I honestly love both versions. The live version, though, has some of the best drumming I've ever heard...and I mean ever...and his ride work on that version led me to getting a K Con.

I love the ride parts in basically all of appetite for destruction. They definitely loved their rides. Some of my favorites are the ride part in Welcome to The Jungle and the groove in It's so Easy. That entire album was full of some amazing ride grooves.

For Welcome to The Jungle, I am talking specifically about the timestamps 2:17 and 2:46.

For It's so Easy, the main groove is basically lots of ride with a cowbell thrown in for part of the chorus.
