Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze!!! This solo, in particular is incredible...
I've been listening to PIL's "Album" (well actually "compact disc") lately, and I decided to listen to what came after so, have been listening to a lot of PIL's "Happy" and "9" album, and the playing of John McGeoch has sort of been blowing me away.....
Not sure many will list this guy - but he was a big influence on me and his recent passing was gutting - too young.
Anyway - a few choices from Tommy Keene
Places That Are Gone (1994 performance but the song was released in the early 80s but I wanted at least one live performance - Tommy was always a little different live than on record, rawer and louder)
Nothing Can Change You - from his ill fated second Geffen record that was brilliant (he said it's his favorite album he's made) and languished with no promotion or support and nearly killed his career.
Andy Summers with the Police would be my top choice followed probably by The Edge from U2.
Awe heck - have to add this - maybe my favorite TK song...
Anything by Neal Schon or Steve Lukather.
The Huey Lewis stuff was really good
Guns N’ Roses of course
Yup, I came here to post Glenn Tilbrook, too. We have this same thread pop up from time to time and he and Elliott Easton are my two go to guys.
I've posted this before but one of my favorite ones from Tilbrook is from, "In Quintessence." Just twangy, brilliance with great phrasing and he gets in and out of the solo in like a matter of seconds. Not a note wasted:
Skip to 1:35 if you only want to hear the solo, but it's a great song worth listening to.
