Interesting .. hadn’t heard that tbh. Seen him live 4 or 5 times now and his style of playing is so distinctive if he didn’t play them back in the late 60s he’s learnt to play that way pretty well!Apparently it's well known in the industry that Neil doesn't play the solos on the records.
And Neil doesn't hide the fact.
I think Nils Lofgren played lead guitar on Like A Hurricane.Interesting .. hadn’t heard that tbh. Seen him live 4 or 5 times now and his style of playing is so distinctive if he didn’t play them back in the late 60s he’s learnt to play that way pretty well!
Yeh I'm not really a 'have you heard that solo?' kind of guy.A solo should serve the song, not the musician. Anything else is musical masturbation. Self indulgent bollocks.
The very best guitarists are 100% humble and don’t feel the need to brag about or show off how good they are.
The old soul and blues guys would piss all over the prog and poodle rockers. They just didn’t feel the need to
There are always exceptions to the rule.Guitar solos are often self-indulgent tripe. Drum solos are worse. Bass solos even worse. Yet somehow I still love Rush. Explain.
I suppose there’s a place for them if the artist is really, REALLY good. Personally the only guitar soloist I truly love is from a band I hate — Joe Walsh of the Eagles. And maybe Eddie Van Halen depending on the song.
