That's Dave Gregory, and it's a rip-off (intentional, as a tribute) of Joe Pass on "Relaxin' at Camarillo." Which actually makes it even more hip in my book.andy partridge's guitar solo on xtc's "pink thing" is very hip
aha! i was told a long time ago that it was andy who played that. the guy who told me was a drummer- go figure what a killing solo it is!That's Dave Gregory, and it's a rip-off (intentional, as a tribute) of Joe Pass on "Relaxin' at Camarillo."
Pretty much every solo Dave ever played on an XTC record belongs on this thread.
good stuff. nice to see a fellow manics fan out there... James sure can let rip when he wants to. Just opened for em in Singapore a few weeks ago, a truly humbling experience. And the manics are really sweet guys - once you get past the tour manager and their thick welsh accents!
