    I've listened to Zeppelin for a long time now, & they are one of the greatest bands ever. I read so much about them being "over rated", & I used to think so myself . But, as I get older & wiser I have come to realize what an incredib...(more)

    due to the production, layering, etc., try Queen, I think you'll find them equally entertaining.

    I saw him on "Live By Request" a few weeks back, he & his band were very tight! I always likened CCR to Black Sabbath: it seems every rocker can play a few tunes by these artists! You can really rock up those old CCR tunes, you can add your ...(more)

    This album was far far ahead of its time, one of the greatest ventures ever in rock music. The songwriting was incredible, the production was incredible, & the vision was incredible.

    are "Cold Shot" & "If the house is rockin'". These are straightforward, good dance tunes, easily recognized as SRV tunes.

    I think Hendrix knew more about what he was doing than we think in reference to scales, etc.

    was not what he knew or how he did things, it was what he understood. His playing was larger than life, he had not even cracked the tip of the iceberg on what he could do in his short span. I saw SRV play Little Wing, Voo Doo Chile, & Purple...(more)

    I checked out that list, & I agree that all of those listed are great solos. The list is a huge testament to Jimi Hendrix, seeing how many of his songs were listed. I trully believe "Star Spangeled Banner" @ Woodstock is the greatest rock gu...(more)

    I respectfully disagree with yours (and others) comments on "Smells like Teen Spirit." I'm not a Nirvana fan by no means, but take some time & really listen to that solo. It is incredible. You can feel the solo, just like many of the greats....(more)

    I saw Kiss in the original line up as well, but it was on the "Dynasty" tour right as things were falling apart. If you have not listened to Kiss much, I highly recommend it. They are pure Rock & Roll in their song structure, chord progressi...(more)

    I agree with your list very much, it's very good. However, 1 name I would add would be Ace Frehley of Kiss. What did he do that was so incredible? He inspired an entire generation of players...

    Lars Ulrich, Eric Carr, Ian Paice, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Carmine Appice, Neal Peart (spelling) to name a few. Nothing makes a band tighter than a good drummer.

    OK, up next is Kirk Hammett & Metallica. What song(s) would you most like to perform with them & why?

    "Ironman". How could anyone NOT want to play that song! I still remember when I first learned that riff, wow! "Symptom of the Universe" is another classic, as is "Snowblind". I also like "Voodoo" from the Dio era.

    OK, up next is Tony Iommi & Black Sabbath. I assume you rock & rollers can play a Sabbath song or 2...which would be your favorite to play with Iommi?
