Since both of you are guitarists what do you think this compilation videos of these two guitarists in Love Bites? JMO but the Scorpions , Deep Purple or any metal band would be envious of their great guitar work.
Agree “heavy metal” not mine either but I put them above punk, glam, grunge, rap, and most of today’s top 40. I like Band Maid better despite the ability of the two guitarists who play so well together.
I was 7 when it came out and probably like 12 when I actually become a Nirvana fan (after his death). Knew them but didn’t start loving rock until 10 or 12…
Yes I’m sure there is some Nostalgia baked in but this is one of the best albums ever, and the production by Butch Vig is studied in studio engineering courses world wide.
They were the Beatles of the 90s
Strong assertion there. Do we go by album sales? or perhaps Rolling stone that ranks them 6th all time over all of the Beatles except Abbey ROAD at 5th? It should be noted that Marvin Gayes “What’s going on” was rated #1? Personally though I might disagree with the order this list looks more credible.
The reason I asked for your age is because R&R has always been looked down upon when it replaced pop with teenager’s adoration of it in the late 50’s. Its death was widely reported by the media about the time the British invasion practically wiped out corporate American R&R music.
JMO but each decade shows a rejection of whatever one’s parents like. Nowhere near as bad today as in the past because despite its predicted demise it is still going strong 60 years later
But, if you want to get super comprehensive, then go for it.
I’d love to see the lists.
Out of my league since I am not a guitarist. Too broad of a topic. Would you say the difficulty
of playing a certain guitar solo yourself would be a factor? I do feel that the instrument has grown tremendously in terms of virtuosity for R&R over the years. Ever listen to JOHNNY WINTERS
The progressive blues experiment?
Crazy Train – Ozzy
One – Metallica
While My Guitar Gently Wheeps – Beatles
Layla – Clapton
Free Bird – Sykynrd
Texas Flood – Stevie
Sultans of Swing – Dire Straights
Jesus Christ Pose – Soundgarden
Every Hendrix song
Every Zep song
There’s too many songs… I’ve ignored songs that don’t have a solo but you could put songs like Chop Suey, Black Hole Sun, Smells Like Teen Spirit…
