Heh, just found out a friend of mine is good friends/neighbors with Slash. Their kids went to school together. My buddy moved back to Atlanta, though.


Oh boy........isn't he lucky!!!!


He showed me a pic on his iPhone of his daughter sitting at Slash's dining room table, Slash strumming his guitar for her. Too cool.

I went to see them twice, last time was in Buenos Aires, 1992......what a night!
And I took my younger brother with me (he was 13)......if they would reunite I would definitely take my kids......your parents are amazing!!

I love Guns n'roses.....the originals, pity they split up.


I agree. It's a shame they aren't together anymore. My mom took me to see all sorts of concerts that I probably wasn't really old enough to be at, but I'm so glad she did! When I was 12, she took me to see Aerosmith and The Black Crows (Pump tour and Shake Your Moneymaker tour, respectively). Then she took me to see GnR when I was 13. But the wildest one was when I was 14 - she took me to see Ozzy and Alice in Chains at the speedway at the Oklahoma State Fair. That was the first time anyone ever threw up on me. Lol. For my son's first concert, I took him to see John Hiatt in Tulsa. I think kiddo was 7 when I took him. I would probably take him to see GnR if they got back together - although I would wait until he is a little bit older. There are just some things he doesn't need to see yet

Just love JJ Cale's guitar work. Master and innovator of the slow hand style. My favorite recording artist. So much wonderful material to chose from. I've always loved the way he sounds even with scales and easier licks. It's the soul of his and the way he speaks with his guit-box. God bless his resting soul.

Vai is a beast. I read an interview where he claimed he fasted for 3 days, in solitude, before recording this, with bleeding fingers.

Might as well throw in some 'Bad Horsie' while we're on Vai. If I were ever to ride into battle, on horseback, wielding a war-hammer, this would be the soundtrack.

Couldn't get your links to work. May be temporary, as prompted by youtube

I agree - love Blackmore, but he tends to butcher his own solos when he plays live. Dude is a weirdo, too.

Vai is unreal. Just saw him recently and met him after (I know a local FM jock who got me in). One of the most intelligent, down-to-earth hippies I've ever met. Dude needs to eat a pork sandwich, though. He's a buck thirty five soakin wet.

Anything by Gilmour, and can't forget about Eddie!

I'm sure I'll be back with more.

Although guitar solos from Iron Maiden are often cited as one of their various trademarks (alongside Bruce Dickinson's unique and most powerful vocals), I present for you all here one of the more beautiful and subdued pieces I think the band has ever composed. Of course, it is best to listen to the whole song so as to capture the context of the work, but starting at 2:33 and ending about 3:01, the fret-work of the guitar solo forever leaves me in awe - even in chills - for it is nothing short of f*cking amazing, and yet, whatever message the solo aims to convey remains a mystery. My brother introduced me to this song, and as it is one of Maiden's less well-known and more modern pieces, it nonetheless remains a shining example of the musical genius and brilliance of the band. Up the IRONS!!

you know, I never actually looked up the player!
thanks for the information.


"The Dan" certainly like using Studio musicians to get their imagined sounds to turn into reality.
