Total badasses, both of them.
Has anyone else noticed the more Neil became involved with the music the less popular it became? Pat could have continued to crank out chart topping hits, but, not so much with his involvement.
Neil has always been one of my favorites. His playing on Pat's first 2 albums especially.
And studio-nerd bonus: He played the solo on "Jessie's Girl"
Pat and Neil still sound good after all those years.
He also regularly plays a GMP Roxie. Great player.
Neil is the reason I started playing guitar when I was twelve. I remember holding a Phillips cassette player up to a pair of stereo speakers and recording his guitar solos when they came on the radio. I don't know why since I did not have a guitar yet but listening to them made me want to get one. Ever notice that he ends his solos with the same note that Pat leads her vocal of with. I still listen to their music all of the time.
I used to love playing this one. I think if I'd heard this version I'd have changed my approach. lol #badass
I saw him when he was with Rick Derringer in 79 at the Frolics club in Salisbury MA, with Kenny Aaronsen on bass and Myron Grombacher on drums. That was one killer band!
I was at this show. They both always bring it live. Just 900's cranked no overdrives...he could never be a member here...ha ha!
She's my favorite singer, and he has always been a great player.
If you haven't read her book, I highly recommend it- Neal was responsible for so much more than just the guitar parts on those huge chart-topping albums.
She was the one who actually wanted more and more guitar. Which is kind of interesting.
