Yes, every time someone says PT can't solo, I'd like to ask them to record themselves playing the acoustic interlude part of that song, and then get back to me.What??? Some of PT's solos are the most iconic in rock. The intro and all the little bits throughout here are indispensable.
Well if you're watching the Kids Are Alright there are some "rough" musical moments.Boy are his solos terrible. Don't get me wrong, his contributions to the band were immeasurable and obviously they have their place in history. However, anytime I watch his solo breaks I find myself being reminded of nails on a chalkboard. It's really like he doesn't know how to play guitar. Sorry for the rant, just watched The Kids Are Alright and couldn't hold my tongue any longer. Keith Moon is always entertaining though.
Why the need to put down other players/styles? You could’ve made your point with the first part and left it.
Pete is a musical genius and one of the best players to ever use a guitar. Period/full stop.
If i never hear another virtuoso like Petrucci/Satriani in note overload or another drop C lick im perfectly content with the Who or similar.
Live at Leeds; get the latest version that is the whole show. It’s very instructive to listen to the live Tommy set, then go back and listen to the studio recording; as good as the original album is, for me it just takes on a whole ‘nother level live. Same thing for the Sell Out material. With rare exceptions (mostly the first album), the Who were never really captured in the studio with the ferocity and power of their live work.What would be a good starting point for them at their peak live? Leeds?
I like and appreciate The Who, but have never gone deep with them.
