Why would anyone give a fuck what those Limeys think?

If it wasn't for us they'd be eating blood sausage and singing "Mein Kamph".

OK, name the 100 greatest American guitar solos and leave the Brits out of it, to say nothing of the Australians and the other also-rans. Canucks, tu.*





*Never forget Tu

I think the 100 greatest Hammond B-3 organ solos would
be equally interesting.

Of all the above listed musicians/bands, some of them were not even popular in their native country when this music was released. They came to America to GET popular. As far as the list goes, it's obviously subjective. Jimmy Page was a fucking hack and everybody knows it. How he became a "guitar god" is difficult to ascertain however I can only attribute it to lack of product. There wasn't a whole lot to choose from then and being they pumped out a bunch of music in a short amount of time made them popular to the average guy.

If one based their decision on technical guitar prowess, Page wouldn't have ever been in the same century as David Gilmour, Ritchie Blackmore, Slash, and DEFINITELY not Mark Knophler. Even Eric Clapton wouldn't have been as popular without his solo career. Cream became wildly popular five years...AFTER they broke up.

 confuseReally?  Hmmm, since I'm a couple of decades older than you and listened to Cream when they were actually releasing albums, I don't remember it that way.  Not even a little bit.  I remember when I first heard Fresh Cream and Hendrix, for that matter, in a dorm room at OHIO (the FIRST Ohio University) in, oh geesh, you'll make me say it, 1967.  Blown away, I never had heard anything quite like that.

 Well, sorta.  Sometimes, these young whippersnappers need to be told.  BTW, GET OFF MY LAWN!

Snippy distinctly remembers (probably) hearing music in 1967. Probably in utero. Or New Orleo.

In 1967 a 10 year old Calvin remembers watching the Stones on the Ed Sullivan show.
