Hi Peter,

I also never said anything about anyone being or not being a master. The bottom line for me, these bands did nothing for me, and the lack of playing made it worse. Sure some great drummers and bassist's, but the guitar playing lacks as do some of the vocal timbre's. Nope you don't have to have a sweeping Malmsteen solo or Eddie VH trick to make a good tune. Solo's are the desert after the meal if you really look at it. They are NOT important, and don't make a song any better, but they do make it worse when they don't sound refined. The 80's thing was so perectionistic (new word? LOL!) that we now settle for less I feel. Sure too much of a good thing was over-done in the 80's. Yeah too many great guitar players with speed and tricks saturated the market, but most rock music is driven by guitar, and some of the greatest rock tunes of our time have solo's that are timeless.

There are also awesome tunes have that 0 guitar solos that are even better. My point in this whole thread was having the whole package. I need to hear a singer with an awesome timbre. A Tony Harnell or when James Labrie of DT sings soft. Steve Perry, Dann Huff, Coverdale, John Sykes. Those dudes can sing and have a great timbre. They deserve to be called vocalists because of the tones they bring forth to ME personally.

Guitarists like Neil Schon, Sykes, Huff, Gary Moore put the icing on the cake as far as soloing goes. Notice I don't mention guitar virtuoso's, I'm talking players that not only play fast/slow when called for, but make you feel extra drama in an already great song. The full package to me is very important and I think todays music suffers in that department. That's just my opinion, and I'll stick by that. So like John, we'll have to agree to disagree also, which you and I Peter, usually do. :)
