Re: who needs a pinky to play a smoking solo...
O.K. I just listened to Reb Beach.
These guys are not both apples.
One is an orange.
In other words they don't play the same or even the same genre.
I mean, well maybe I speak without really knowing what the hell I am talking about.
Let me explain.
I am a MS fan from the UFO days...only!
I have never heard anything else after the first five or so albums...that is it.
I have never heard RB with anyone. I have heard of him and thought I may have recently seen him with a Whitesnake concert on Paladia, but other than that, not really.
Having said that...I can clearly see they come from different camps.
Regarding MS...yes the solo was kinda lame.
I can remember when I played in my 20s...much different than now in my 50s.
Sorry that is life.
I still try, but I my life is completely different.
In my 20s all I did was play guitar.
Now I have to find time for it.
That is life...oh well.
Oh, and just for fun...the reality of it is, that I had NO money for good gear in my twenties and now I have the best gear available...again, life really sucks!
