Nice! Old school Scott, before he did the blues thing. I love his tones and phrasing from this period. Steve Bailey is incredible as well. I haven't heard much of him, but everything I've heard is pretty phenomenal.
I remember a great concert that featured Steve Bailey w/ Carl Verheyen, Greg Bissonette, and T. Lavitz at M.I.
Steve kicked much ass that night.
I like Scott's use of the whammy bar, BTW. It's not like he does a lot of meaningless dive bombing - he uses it to simulate slide, etc. Oh well, like the man said: "you can't please everyone, so you've got to please yourself."
first time i heard the guy was this lp ("tribal tech" circa '91), & it was also the first time a player had knocked me off my feet since holdsie, because THIS guy finally did the perfect melding of the aforementioned & jeff beck. it's SO bloody in your face, neck-throttling, & melodic, & he's EASILY one of my fave players in AGES...
