What band was Cody in?
Their first album is really good and his solo track "The Explorer" has some great guitar work going on.
C.C. may not have been a shredder but he played some perfect for the song solos and some great riffs. I love Richie Kotzen and I love well played shred/stunt guitar, but C.C. is the one who sold millions of records.
Very cool. I have heard of them but don't think I ever heard any of their stuff. That is my favorite era of guitar and music.
Electric violin, but still... This was on a compilation that we had at the record where I worked when I was in high school.
Rusty Anderson - Baseball
This track was on the same compilation as the Mark Wood "Monkeybats" song and it blew me away when I heard it, mainly because it made me feel like "Hey, you could do that too if you keep practicing!".
Here's the link to the comp:
Danny DeLaRosa and Ron Freschi of Babylon AD....great players and both were good dudes.
Someone mentioned him earlier, but my old guitar teacher Darren Housholder was a FREAKING MONSTER player. Darren was on Shrapnel records and also played with Love Hate. By far the best guitarist I have ever known personally. I use to take Saturday afternoon lessons and mine usually ran extra long because Darren would take his time and eat lunch and all that stuff. Not in hurry and loved to teach. It has been absolutely impossible to find someone like that to learn from in private lessons since then. The lessons were not really expensive either.
I remember him saying that he was using 11's on his first record. He said he was getting his blackbelt at the time and that his hands were like claws back then.
And if you are into lesser known guitarist of that era then check out some of Brain Sword's interviews on the Double Stop. Brian is epic when interviewing guys like this because he did his research, asks great questions and does not talk over his guests. Plus he can get good answers out of the less talkative guys.
I don't think he qualifies as "forgotten." Of all of the '80s guys, Warren is still very well known, on par with Lynch in that category.
Another David Chastain fan here. I saw numerous Chastain/CJSS shows at Bogarts. I believe CJSS had major label interest, but David always felt the deals they were offered were unfair to the band. Here’s a full length show at Bogarts with the “Marshalls”.
All of my favorites have already been mentioned. Anybody remember Icon out of Arizona?
I totally agree with you.
For some reason it bothers me when Ozzy regards Randy highly, even though he should but still it's because he's Ozzy. It's like he can do it because the other party can't dispute it or something. I'm not convinced the feelings were mutual.
A couple great Chastain Leviathan label mates were Joe Stump and Michael Harris.
The reason Ozzy regards Randy highly is Randy banged Sharon,
and that kept Ozzy from having to do it.
I always wanted that red Kramer.
I saw Darren play with Love/Hate, dude killed it!!!!
His first solo album was excellent!
One name I have not seen here is Richie Kotzen-
he was in Poison for a while.
Beach is freaking awesome.....and his tapping style is not typical.
I don't think Kotzen has been mentioned in this thread yet... he's outstanding, and has maintained a nice career for himself all these years. Not sure what the qualifications are for "underrated'... but Kotzen certainly seems to be, except by those who actually listen to him. He's the triple threat: plays great, sings great, writes great. Interestingly, I'm more a fan of his writing and singing than I am his playing.... he's still a bit too shreddy for me. And I still love shredders- YJM, Vai, Timmons.... but Kotzen shreds... without purpose?... it's just a flurry of notes he throws in to get up or down the neck, whereas I feel the others also have a melody to their shredding, which is what has always separated the men from the boys, for me.
