I've listened to this over and over and see it as brilliant, excellent speed and smooth. I was wondering why it never made it on to any top solo lists? How come it's unreconized?
Because mentioning that song gets you band.
immho, its not exactly the most inspiring solo. it may sound 'smooth', but what you must remember is, the time at which it was released (around 1978), was when VH burst onto the scene. i dont know about you but if i was a teen playing guitar in 1978, i would rather be learning VH than The Knack
It is actually one of my favourite solos
