Guitar Players & Rock Fans: Your Opinion Of? by Darth The Northman (Ride To War) Q: My Favorite Guitarists Micheal Schenker Richie Blackmore Jake E Lee Randy Rhodes Ronnie Montrose Tony Iommi David Gilmour The Edge Steve Howe Yngwie Malmsteen Jimmy Page What is your opinion of the talents of these guitarists? Sorry no YouTube links this time. The last time I asked this same question a few minutes ago somebody with absolutely ZERO life reported it. Love Hendrix's guitar work His vocals..not so much Edge is bad Come now Listen to the song "Surrender" Then tell Me that Didn't want to spend all day listing every single guitarist I liked Jon Just My faves Joe Satriani rules Vai is amazing but to Me He's all flash and no heart No offence Eddie VH is great and one of the best Just not one of my faves I'd rather listen to a Montrose song any old day Honestly I should have listed Carlos Santana & Jeff Beck Let Me clarify This is My Favorites NOT My opinion of the best Sorry but I think Yngwie could outplay Petrucci in a guitar battle What did I just say IT's MY FAVORITES Jeez I think Stevie Ray Vaughan is Over-Rated He never impressed Me Send Him back in time to Woodstock Hendrix would blow him right off the stage Who the heck is Jim Root????????????

A: Darth, I've been playing for forty-two years now. None of these guys were on the scene when I started, so you can imagine how cool it has been to see wave after wave of accomplished axemen hit the shores of my aural universe. It did my heart good to see Ronnie Montrose on your list. He's highly underrated and really has signature licks that are his alone. Gilmour, well, there is simply no other guitarist alive today that can get more soul out of a Stratocaster. His playing has been called minimalistic; that's fine with me. I don't confuse flash for tasty licks anyway. The Edge is in that niche as well. Jimmy Page, in my estimation, has his genius in his chordal arrangements and how quickly he can segue from one impossible chord to another. Interestingly enough, those on the inside have said that if Randy Rhodes were still alive today, he would probably be playing classical music exclusively. He was headed in that direction just before his death, and it's evident in his playing style. It's one thing to marvel to all of these players as you listen to them, but when you try to cop their licks - actually play the stuff that they do, you develop an appreciation for the immense talent, inspiration, and hard work that all exhibit. You also get rare glimpses into the worlds that these guys live in. Hats off to you and anyone that bring items like this to the R&P boards.

Have you ever stumbled across an album you hadn't heard in years, maybe forgot about? by Leprosy Q: and remembered why you loved it so much? I found this at Hastings last night (used) Barren Cross=Rock For The King http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwF3GAmKIZw Ronnie Montrose produced the re-release. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDaaCSRfJIs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxW_0zBtZ7M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENiW_5qqb4U http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zLHQkVYajc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpP4ENBMy1o http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEmBYzgFa6o

A: About a month ago I started uploading the rest my collection onto my computer and came across a ton of stuff that I hadn't listened to in years. I was actually amazed at how much I had simply forgotten about. One band in particular: The Wildhearts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plBna98XZNQ When I found out about these guys I bought up everything I could find, including imports. Probably got about 10 releases in all. Then for some reason I just stopped listening to them. Listening to the albums as I was uploading them brought back alot of great memories.

A friend of mine just reminded me of my roots. Will you take my Blues and Blues/Rock survey? by Mike H Music Man in New Orleans Q: all of these artists are among my favorites of all time and there are no wrong answers. I am just curious to see what you guys think. Thanks David V for the kind words and the reminder of were my heart truly lies. Hendrix is left off because who is better than him. LOL Eric Clapton vs Jeff Beck Duanne Allman vs Johnny Winter Jimmy Page vs Keith Richards ( not as cut and dry as you might think - both are masters in their own way) Stevie Ray Vaugn vs Eric Clapton - yes I know Clapton was already used Ritchie Blackmore vs Pete Townsend Muddy Waters vs Howlin Wolf Buddy Guy vs BB King Taj Mahal vs Elmore James Paul Butterfield vs John Mayall Alvin Lee vs Ronnie Montrose Robin Trower vs Steve Howe Sonny Boy Williamson vs T-Bone Walker Freddie King vs Albert King Robert Johnson vs Little Walter

What Song Convinced You That Your Favorite Guitarists Were The Best? by Karl's On Hiatus Q: The songs that, when you heard them you knew, the person playing it was Jesus Christ of the Axe. These songs convinced me Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions) "The Sails Of Charon" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpmHbyXzVxE Michael Schenker (UFO) "Rock Bottom" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qP_OqOJ8ug Ronnie Montrose "Bad Motor Scooter" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk52nGxF-jc Yngwie Malmsteen "Evil Eye" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj3ec2cCaJw You should have the idea by now. so go! Thanks Lorenz. And your opinion's welcome, but if you wish to reserve it that's fine too. Zimmy, I've always thought Jimi's playing sounded like God playing using Saturn's rings for strings and the Galaxy as an Amp Hell yeah Dime!!!

The Red Rocker Sammy Hagar? by Darth The Northman (Ride To War) Q: Whuch phase of Sammy Hagar's Career do You prefer The Montrose Years The Solo Career With Van Halen I am a huge fan of his work with Montrose and as a solo artist in the late 70's and early 80's myself. But especially with Montrose Sammy Hagar (Vocals) Ronnie Montrose (Guitar) Bill "Electric" Church (Bass) Denny Carmassi (Drums) Now THAT'S A Metal Band But what's You favorite Hagar Era? Sammy with Van Halen? Not so much Hell Yeah Rock Candy! S-weeeeet! Standing Hampton...awesome! Montrose & Standing Hampton Are My top two Albums with Hagar Vocals George Gary Phil Sammy's guitarist on His older solo albums Kool Fonzie Buddy Check out Rock Candy & Rock The Nation By Montrose & Heavy Metal & Baby's On Fire By Sammy Hagar Then be prepared to watch Your speakers melt!

A: You made me pull out the vinyl!! Definitely the Montrose Years. Probably the best backing that Sammy has ever had, not to mention the best he's ever sounded. If you don't have it already, get it; for those that have it, put on 1973's Montrose, turn it UP, and enjoy! The disc starts out with One Thing On My Mind, and goes to Good Rockin' Tonight, then the gloves come off! The notorious Bad Motor Scooter amps up starting with Ronnie Montrose's signature lick using an open D tuning and a slide for the original motorcycle rev on guitar. Just when you think the smoke has cleared, Rock The Nation kicks in, plays, and ends with perhaps one of the best endings for a rock song going. The boys must have known your senses would be reeling by now because Space Station #5 accentuates that feeling with a trippy start to a great song. I Don't Want It and Make It Last follow only to have the album finish on Rock Candy, one of the best "attitude songs" in rock, period. Throughout the whole album, Ronnie Montrose on guitar and Sammy Hagar on vocals seem to be inspiring one another rather than competing for our attention. The end result is a kick-in-the-pants rock album of mythic proportions, in my mind.

So I Been Getting Into Instrumental Guitar Rock Lately? by Karl's On Hiatus Q: A La Malmsteen, Ronnie Montrose, Joe Satriani, Vinnie Moore, and Allan Holdsworth. All of them are incredible talents and I truly love the music. So I was wondering what other artists of the same type am I missing out on? Can You recommend me some fantastic instrumental guitar rock that I don't already have? (P.S. Everyone else is fine but don't bother with Eric Johnson) Dude, I worship Jeff Beck Nice Post Rock stuff David, especially Don Caballero

A: I know you like Mahavishnu of course but if you haven't, delve into some solo McLaughlin. Gordian Knot Planet X (Allan Holdsworth and Al di Meola guested on some stuff from these guys) Dixie Dregs/Steve Morse Band Exivious Shut Up and Player Yer Guitar - Frank Zappa Bundles and Softs - Soft Machine ... The Ventures? :o 8) I'll edit if I think of more you may not have heard.

does avy body have footage of the edgar winter group on the don kirshner's in concert series featuring ronnie by Luis P Q: does anybody have footage of the edgar winter group featuring ronnie montrose & dan hartman from the don kirshner's in concert series that was simulcast on the WPLJ FM radio station. want to buy

A: Type Edgar Winter on Yahoo and click on the "video" tab. I just did it and there are too many to look through for ya. I like Montrose though, "Rock the Nation" from his solo album with teenage Sammy Hagar on vocals was the best ever.

Somebody mentioned Montrose on one of my questions - Do you have any favorites By Ronnie solo or in a band? by Papa Joe Q: I couldn't find my actual favorite but you might like "Rock Candy" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUeuAnMNDhA

A: Same album - Bad Motor Scooter Montrose - Montrose is one the best Hard Rock albums of the 70's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8T_PQoTC30 also Good Rockin' Tonight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzV7KPAH9wM

R.I.P. Ronnie Montrose? by Red Rocker Q: He died today. He was a rock guitarist who played with many rockers like Sammy Hagar and Van Morrison. He formed the band Montrose with Sammy. BQ: What are some of your favorite songs from Montrose?

A: Damn, hadn't heard this yet. The good ones always leave too soon! Montrose didn't make a bad song or album, so its hard to narrow down my favorite. Make it Last, All I Need, Twenty Flight Rock, Bad Motor Scooter & of course Rock Candy

Does anyone remember Ronnie Montrose? by Carol D Q: I am trying to get one of his songs on mp3 and can't seem to download it, So I was wondering if anyone knew how to get it? The song is called - I wish I was. He had his own band called Gamma but I can't get it under either name.
