Rick Di Fonzo and Snowy White playing 80 feet in the air to 350,000 people on top of what used to be the Berlin wall. Even though I cannot stand hearing Van Morrison singing it, the best guitar solo ever played for a record crowd eight months after the wall was torn down was terribly historic.

See 5:05 for the solo:

I am (hopefully) picking up a Epiphone Les Paul Ultra tonight (hey, sounds almost as good as the real thing and I am saving $2,500 <G>). I bought used Fender Squire with uncharacteristic killer action and tone a few months ago to complete the pair so I will be playing both parts soon. You gotta love inexpensive guitars that sound great.

I have a friend who played on the road for 20+ years and he swears this Vito Bratta solo is the best ever (starts @ 2:20). He can play pretty much anything (as opposed to me - I can't play hardly anything) so I have to respect his opinion on this.

Can you copy and paste? If so, when you make a post, click the YouTube button, and it will bring up the letters YT in square brackets. Click the embed link on the YouTube video page, which is to the lower right, copy the link it brings up, paste it between the YT brackets and thats it. NOT HARD!

I was about to post this exact post, dead serious. 100% the same. I just came home blasting this in my Audi.

EDIT: Also, the solo from Hey You is perfectly creepy.
