    i've always been more fond of Billy Cobham's 2nd album, Crosswinds:

    Those horn charts he wrote are FIRE!!!
    It was John Abercrombie on guitar at that point though, not Tommy Bolin.
    i think Abercrombie was playing a Gibson SG back then.

    Well it’s a good record too. Then you get...



    But Bolin was an advanced Rock guy that got the nod to play on Fusion Drum God record and I just feel his influence spread from there. I mean nobody cares that he replaced Joe Walsh in the James Gang... but that Spectrum record influence can still be heard in Jeff Beck’s and others playing even to this day. Abercrombie was a real Jazz guy from the get go.

    Wonder if that contributes to a slight string breakage problem she had at about the 6:00 point in the song?

    She did handle the guitar swap to another white strat (won me over with that one, hee hee.....) pretty well for doin' everything herself.

    With regards to Larkin and Poe, Rebecca Lovell did good job of workin' over a Strat when we saw her live last year at the Sister's Rhythm and Brews Festival. Even more so for Eric Gales at the same show. Not sure if he plays a Fender anymore though. I thought I saw an interview with him where he's been playing a custom made one of another brand???

    'Timeless' is exactly my kind of thing, as you probably know by now.
    But Bolin... yeah... OMG, he could burn up the fingerboard for sure!
    When i listen to Stratus, i'm reminded a bit of Jeff Beck circa 'Rough and Ready'...
    there's the same sort of feel to the groove of the band.
    It's relaxed, yet still kind of tense at the same time.
    Awesome stuff.

    Wow that's interesting, shows how subjective this topic is. To me he is by far the most creative and melodic player from the younger generation. I think he mixes and blends many styles and puts his own twist to it. This in comparison to some other players that are mentioned here who have monster chops for sure, but sound so much like SRV, that's what I can't stand...

    To add one more guy to the list, what about Scott McKeon:
