+1 for Patto, I was lucky enough to see them in the Black Swan Sheffield (I think it's called the Compleat Angler now ). There was a guy mouthing off and Ollie shouted, "just because you've got a mouth like a fireplace it doesn't means you're great (grate)". It was the same year "Last Tango in Paris" was first shown because we went to see it the next day. Edit: Just looked that up, it was 1972.Ollie Hasall (RIP! )

what a monster player......I love his work with Patto!!!! Listen to "give it all away" - what a great solo!!!
Ya know, that's the first Buckethead solo I've ever heard that I liked. THANKS! Thordendal's interesting too, though not my kinda music.let's see, first out we have Buckethead who does one of the most moving solos I know of. It's so unique in it's expression and it's lifting me up from my chair and taking me on a journey to the place where war and world hunger has ended, so beautiful and up in the sky.
Next we have Fredrik Thordendal doing what he does best. The alien speech trough his guitar, beaming shivers down my spine.
That was a fantastic solo and tune. You're right about his time. He is so up and top of that pocket and driving and dancing with it. Thanks for that. I enjoyed the hell out of it. I've liked various things I've heard from Krantz, but this makes me want to go listen to a bunch more.Maybe not the greatest guitar solo of all time, but I really like Whippersnapper by Wayne Krantz. Terrible sound and recording. It's live. This is a trio. He's a great rhythm player, who has been playing recently with Steely Dan and jazz sax player Chris Potter. He has great time. Very inventive solo. He smokes! Wayne Krantz - Whippersnapper (live) - YouTube
