There's a ton of incredible drummers out there that do great drum solos... IE Tommy Aldridge, Bobby Jarzombek, Fritz Randow, Nicko McBrain, Felix Bohnke, etc.
... just because you dont have tubular bells and electronic drums in your kit doesn't mean it's a shitty drum solo.
Maybe it's just because I'm not a drummer, but Appice's solo (and Jeff Plate's for that matter) bored the hell out of me. Now there are two guys besides Peart who I would imagine play a great solo: Danny Carey and Martin Lopez. But if you don't have any interesting percussion in your kit, I don't know why you'd bother with a solo. If Tony would have been playing a riff over that solo, I don't think I would have known Appice was playing one.
