Me to for Bill Nelson.
Yeah, but it was Steve Howe's stuff! Trev could never have composed it; his style is much more fusion based.
A second vote for Mel Galley with Trapeze. Every juicy funky rock lick he played on this great album is burned into my memory, although due to my inferior talent not much of it comes out of my fingers.
Another band that doesnt get enough mention IMHO. The song “Dancing madly backwards on a sea of air” is awesome!
That whole album is awesome. Have you heard any of "Sufficiently Breathless?"
I have the first 2 albums for a couple decades plus…lol,and they rock. I’m still on the hunt for the 3rd.
YES, someone who knows him. Check him out on Captain Beefheart's "Mirror Man" Cd: guitar and general instrumental and vocal magnificence.
Anyone heard of Adrian Belew? Duhh
David Bowie guitarists Mick Ronson, Carlos Alomar, Reeves Gabrels
Mick Ralphs (Mott the Hoople, Bad Company)
Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd (Television)
I also agree with the previous shoutouts for Elliott Easton, Alex Lifeson and Neil Geraldo.
Robin Trower. Critics act like he was the only guitarist to be influenced by Hendrix. In his 70’s and still putting out new music and touring.
Check out Vindicator by Arthur Lee for some Hendrix influence.
Fred 'Sonic' Smith
Has anyone mentioned Franny Beecher, lead guitarist for Bill Haley and the Comets?
Rock around the Clock had be bouncing off the walls the first time I heard the whole song with the solo. That would have been early 70's for me.
Got to be Tony TS Mcphee of the Groundhogs. Brilliant guitarist, brilliant band, criminally underrated.
Second choice, the bloke who did the guitar solo on Say Goodbye to Love by the Carpenters. Always makes me weep.
Mick Box isn't a name that allows pops up but his chop are right at the top
Absolutely agree! Trevor and Steve are completely on opposite ends of the music spectrum. I learned about Yes thorough TR and worked my way backwards to their earlier stuff. I never had a chance to see them on the Union Tour but sure it had to be interesting with both of them playing on the same stage.
I saw them on the Union tour. It was polite as nobody wanted to offend and done in the round. Seen better Yes concerts going back to the original Relayer tour, The Buggles tour and later ones.
