I can remember hearing Hold the Line for the first time and that solo just dropping my jaw on the floor. Is it me or does it seem like Luke should be a hell of a lot older then 55 lol as it seems like he has always been there. His achievements are just mind boggling- played on over 1,500 records as a session player, one of the founding members of a hugely successful rock band, and God only knows how many live gigs he has played. The only knock I have about Luke is that is tone was truly brutal in the mid 80's (which he admits) as it sounded like he stepped on 10 pedals at once. Foe a reference get the bootleg of the live in Japan show with Luke, Beck and Santana. Kind of a shame as I love that DVD and Luke (as wired as he was lol) has his chops in mind boggling form but he sounds dreadful.Glad to see him cleaned up and he has been as bust as ever. Also the EBMM Luke-III is one smoking axe!
