So, Casey and I were talking today about some of rock's most underrated guitar solos. I threw out the dude; I don't even know his name, who played on Two Tickets to Paradise. Mike countered with Reeling in the Years from Steely Dan. Elliot Randall's playing was certainly stellar, but underrated. So my question is...what guitar solos would you introduce into the discussion?
I'd like to nominate Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple performing Highway Star.
Mike Campbell's solo in Tom Petty's "Runnin' Down a Dream"
hey mike , try lindsey buckingham's, so afraid, he goes to a rampaging elephant by the end. i suggest the ball concert the mans fingers are bleeding by the end of his performance.
hey mike and dan, what about robin trower, or pat traverse? even stephen stills .all of them highly underrated, or sammy hagar with ronnie montrose. all freakin amazing ! or even an out of your genre , roy clark, . roger mcquin. i could go on and on. thanks for the thought provoking blog.
