I think we would be talking about Randy Rhoades, absolutely. He was great and with some longevity he could have really made a deep mark. At least
that's my opinion.
I had completely forgotten Santana, until I listened to him a few days ago. Sounds so effortless. Two other things I remembered that go in the
"You Wouldn't Think It" file.
1) A friend said he saw Prince while living in Germany. Went to the show as a kind of "yeah, why not" type thing. He said at one point Prince
started JAMMIN, and absolutely blew them all away! Totally unexpected.
2) Back in the '80s when we were high-school aged, they had a Rick Springfield concert, "Live and Kickin", on tv which was being simulcast on DC
101. I thought it was going to be stupid, but my brother set up everything to try and tape it. Same thing as above... at one point he came out and
started jammin like crazy! We all just kinda looked at each other in astonishment because this was WAY beyond the cutsie-poo "Jessie's Girl" stuff
we expected. He could really play. Who knew?
