out come the old rockers then Smile

mine is Damage Inc by Metallica - song rocks along nicely and then a quick "go" from the singer and the guitarist goes mental , makes me laugh everytime.

shame there isn't one of those smileys with long hair! As said in the other thread, live was one by Richie Blackmore with Whitesnake doing Deep Purples "mistreated", on Album there's a great one by Pearl Jam on Alive. There's also a better one by Eddie Van Halen but I can't remember the song. I also love Angus Young (AC/DC), Michael Schenker, also a good solo on Saxon's 747 Strangers in the Night. Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath was the master of the three day long live solo. I could go on but you'll be glad to hear I won't!

oh yes. They were at the forefront of what was referred to at the time as "the new wave of British heavy metal". Wheels of Steel was their pinnacle.

Maiden - now we're talking. I saw them in the v. early days when Paul D'ianno was still lead singer, and I also saw them a couple of times at Hammy Odeon with Bruce Dickinson & also once at Reading rock when they headlined the saturday night, supported by Marillion if memory serves me. My Number of The Beast picture disc is one of my prize possessions (I'd love to turn it into a rear disc wheel for my bike Very Happy - it would look fantastic ). Those Maiden clothes are a must have for any well dressed tot - although I have a feeling Mrs SR won't agree. I wonder if I can get some of those Steve Harris stripey trousers anywhere....

Come on folks, let's take a step back into music history when admittedly there was a lot of cr*p, but equally, some of the best guitar solos of all time. Anything by James Marshall Hendrix has to be top of the list. For sheer tone and brilliance, try "little Wing" or for something a bit heavier, Machine Gun" off the Band of Gypsies album. To this list I would also add "Comfortably NUmb" featuring Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd and perhaps the best all round guitar LP of all time, "Chicago Transit Authority" by the band of the same name who later went all funny and just called themselves "Chicago". Terry Kath was an ace guitarist in a great band. And I haven't even mentioned Bert Weedon or Hank Marvin...!

Some good choices there Giantman. Agree with you about little wing and most definitely Comfortably Numb. I never heard much Chicago and always had them in the same bracket as bands like Styx or Toto. There were some great guitarists around in the 70's - people like Steve Hackett, Steve Howe and the great Carlos Santana, some of his stuff on Moondance is sublime.

Chicago went all funny after "Twenty Five or Six To Four" became a hit. Before that they were a heavy, progressive band with an element of jazz to their sound. "Chicago Transit Authority" is a double album (one LP studio, the other "live") and if you can get hold of a copy, you won't be dissappointed. If you're into downloading music off Kazaa, etc, then look out for tracks like "Liberation", "Poem" and "South Carolina Purples". "Free Form Guitar" is also a hoot - about 15 minutes of wierd feedback - but only recommended after a sizeable number of Carlsberg specials!

Whats the line up these days? NEC I find is an ok venue but a bit big - no mosh pit! Although am now too old for moshing. I used to like Hammersmith Odeon best where you could leave your seats and rush the front. Put my head in the speakers at a Motorhead concert once - now have tinnitus.

Janick Gers is a great guitarist. He's been around for ages, I saw him in a band called White Spirit about 20 years ago (sh1t, that's scary), supporting Gillan. Motorhead are great live aren't they? Philthy Animal Taylor is up there with Animal off the muppetts in my line up of mental drummers. Motorhead were never the same after Fast Eddy left though.
