    This would be mine too, what an amazing player Friedman was in that band. That solo is like a great story, has a real ebb and flow, plenty of tricks but hummable too.

    Lucretia from that same album is bad ass too.

    Rust in Peace is a thrash masterpiece.

    Prince looks so cool in this. What a legend.


    This one's pretty neat

    Cliché, but absolute classic. I agree so much. Remember hearing it back when i was 11, and just falling in love with it, watching the live version of Medlocke going crazy with the solo for freebird. Used so much time trying to replicate it on a goddamn acoustic, before i got my Electric guitar.

    Not the best but one of my favorites. Especially because you get a decent Adrian Bellew opening, then the Zappman rips it apart.

    I really like Adrian Belew. He has worked with so many top level musicians. His work with King Crimson is my favorite.

    Here is some incredible guitar work Belew does on Bowie's song Stay:

    Pleasantly surprised to see so much Zappa in here. Here's one of my favorites, with Captain Beefheart singing:

    This is a simple one, but always makes me [​IMG] when I hear it.


    Bowie worked with some great musicians. Especially in that 1970-1983 period.

    Carlos Alomar is another great guitarist.

    Always loved the solo on Tonight.
