Who is your favorite guitarist?

Recommended Posts

I did a search and didn't find this thread but that doesn't mean it hasn't been done before in some form or other. Anyway it doesn't make sense to list them, just pick your favorite......

 

Mine is Victor Smolski of Rage.....

Without hesitation or question, as far as pure emotion, Jimi Hendrix. The riffmaster general is Tommi Iommi. But I'll always have a soft spot for Tony MacAlpine. Had the pleasure of meeting him once and he was truly a nice guy. Great guitar player as well.

Hi people!

I'm on vacation and if my girlfriend catches me typing, I'm dead, but I had to say something here.

The first time I was blown away by a solo was George Lynch, so I'll go with him. It's something we never forget. :headbanger:

If we were talking "team work", that would be Paul Gilbert and Bruce Boillet in Racer X! That would be a good topic too... :headbanger:

Be back next week, everyone take care! Don't drink too much, everyone arriving after you need to drink too! :drink:

    • Nice! Never got the debut so will pick that up for sure.   Might grab the other two also for the bonus stuff.
    • As mentioned before 'Loud Minority' gets the reissue treatment and so does their 2 follow-ups as well. From Frontiers: • CRAZY LIXX TO RE-ISSUE 2007 DEBUT ALBUM, "LOUD MINORITY" PLUS "NEW RELIGION" AND "RIOT AVENUE", EACH FEATURING BONUS TRACKS

      • ALL THREE AVAILABLE ON CD/COLOR LP/MP3 ON OCTOBER 12, 2018

      Swedish hard rock outfit Crazy Lixx will reissue their long out-of-print 2007 debut album, "Loud Minority" via Frontiers Music srl on October 12, 2018. In addition to the original 11 tracks found on the album, the reissue will also feature seven bonus tracks, including Japanese bonus tracks and early demo versions of track. Along with the reissue of "Loud Minority", reissues of the follow-up albums "New Religion" (2010) and "Riot Avenue" (2012) will also be available on October 12th, each with added bonus material on both as well.

      All three albums will be available on CD, Digital, and, for the first time, LP. The vinyl versions will all be special, limited edition color versions. See below for details and tracklisting. 

      Crazy Lixx vocalist and original member, Danny Rexon on the reissue of LOUD MINORITY: "The original pressing of 5000 albums was the only one ever made. We were on a small independent label at the time and even though the album was quite successful, peaking at #2 on the Swedish Rock charts, there was never any second pressing. The label ceased to be and we managed to buy out the rights for the album which we've now handed over to Frontiers. We're very pleased to be able to re-release this album a decade after it was originally out and after being unavailable for so long. Of all the requests we get from fans, this album has to be one of the most asked for." 

      "When we started out in the early 2000's I never thought vinyl would ever be a thing again, but since it has risen in popularity it's become something of a bucket-list thing to get our debut album (and the other ones of course) out on vinyl, so naturally we're very happy to be able to reissue these on vinyl," Rexon concludes.
