Not trolling - I've owned one Poison CD in my life and that was decades ago. But I'm sure you can admit that, whether you like them or not, if I say something like "Talk Dirty to Me" (and no I'm not proposing to you...) you can hear the song in your head, you can hear the solo in your head, and you're (probably) impressed by the descending scale thing at the end of it.
I think DeVille at least matches Schon in that department. Poison had huge hits with DeVille in the band. They replaced him with a much more technically proficient guitarist for one album, and nobody can name any songs on that album.CC is not even close to Neil Schon in any of those categories. In a buttrock gauntlet, he wouldn’t make it past Mick Mars.
This is the gear page, so. I get your point, but, c'mon man...CC Deville? And, if you think 'every rose has it's thorns' is a good song, we're probably not going to agree on much.Perhaps not on TGP, where things like oxygen-free cable, true bypass, scatter-winding, etc. Is more important than music. But I'd say if you were to talk to non-musicians who are simply fans of rock music, you might see something different.
