I do like Paul Simon, but considered him more of a great songwriter and singer than guitar guy. "Late in the Evening" is one of my favorites!

Is it true that George Bush will be joining him on stage for the next performance of "Diamonds on the Soles of their Shoes"?

    Rory Gallagher

    Any of you familiar with the late "stratomaster" from the Emerald Isle, Rory Gallagher? I was amazed at the youtube collection of videos from the sixties thru the nineties. Another amazing artist whose life was cut short.

    Was the first album Rany teamed up with Ozzy and could be Ozzy's best, although Diary of a Madman (Randy's other album with him) is also great.

    New Ozzy May 22 - Black Rain. Hope it's worth the wait.

    Randy Rhoads?

    Sure he plays a mean lead. I'm on a Rory mission. He was overlooked while he was alive and since you all brought up guitar virtuosos I'm not gonna let him slip. Vai, Slash, Johnson, even Rhoads... where would they be? Let's give Kudos to the Dead Guitarists.

    Billy Sheehan..

    is the real talent in the first vid ( along with MacAlpine ). The sound ( tone ) from the bass on this is just amazing.

    Randy Rhodes is a very important chapter in rock guitar for sure. I view rock guitar like this...Hendrix , Van Halen , Rhodes , Malmsteen , ( MacAlpine / Becker / Gilbert ). IMO , the book ends somewhere around 1990 ( guitar playing reached it's confines and anything else since has already been done ). Dream Theater may be an exception , but only as a group.

    And the " Rory " vids are great. He was so ahead of his time.

    edit : I listed guitar players as " absolute milestones " ...not to say that there were not great players in between . Steve Morse for example ...( not really mainstreem " rock music "...I consider him a baseline for all that is music.

    And how about the "older" guitar players that played in groups that put out many really good albums? Jimi Hendrix did this in an amazingly short period of time, as did Duanne Allman. I like Jimmy Page on either electric or acoustic, and he had such a variety of technics - not a shabby band, either? Eric Clapton anchored so many groups - it's unfathomable, really. David Gilmour, the perfectionist, amongst mostly chaos. Carlos Santana opened our minds. Joe Walsh and Frank Zappa seemed to just be able to do it, while goofing around...

    I dug it!

    I'm sort of a jazz snob. I never heard him play guitar but his piano chops are good. The tune a bit lame, more of a "tone poem" than a real song, but a nice gig all around.

    Thanks for sharing.

    You Tube Rory

    I was absolutely amazed at the quantity of videos available from this guy. I only saw him once, in a small club in a Chicago suburb around '79 or so. The "Tatoo" and "Irish Tour" albums were and are staples in my collection. Work, family, and other things rather dropped him and his music from my radar. Thanks youtube and contributors for bringing it back to the fore. If you look he used the same strat from the 60's to the 90's. Fender released a "Rory" model complete with worn body. I don't live in the past but I sure don't mind relivin' it!

    This was one of my favorite songs. The first three minutes are a little out of synch but it gets better.

    This was recorded within a year of his death. I think I see a DVD purchase in the near future.

    Like to get a taste...

    It's strange that I've never heard any of Rory's songs on the radio or in anyone I know's collection - yet been subjected to all these years of U2's whining monotany. On the internet, I see other people bring his name up when great guitarists are mentioned, so I feel like I'm missing out. Can't get the U-tube thing to work, but will investigate what the music store has to offer. Thanks!

    How could you forget...

    Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) He's a contender for best guitar player ever! Clapton, Paul Simon(before his accident), Hendricks, George Benson, BB King, Chuck Loeb.
