Re: Did you see the Beatles Tribute show ...the two guitar players
Was very underwhelmed with Brad Paisley that night, his tone was wrong for the song and maybe that was a poor song choice cause he did seen to be engaged in his play. HATED Imagine Peguin. Joe Walsh sucked on his first time up, but did far better job on While My Guitar. John Mayer was good but I freaking loved Keith Urbans playing, his leads were solid and his lead fills behind Mayer were super solid and in many ways IMO better than Mayer's. I heard a LOT of bitching yesterday about Gary Clark Jr but I dug his bit as well. I thought the idea of using Peter Frampton and Steve Lukather for the rhythm guitar section (and a few leads) was great, esp. since they both have played extensively with Ringo Starrs All Star Band. Wasn't too impressed with Moroon 5 either but thats just me, everyone else seems to love 'em.
Pauls band always kills me, esp. his drummer Abe. If you look at his kit from the night his bass drum was MASSIVE one of the biggest Ive ever seen and his floor tom was reg. kick drum tuned high. That guy is just incredible. Im also a huge fan of Rusty Anderson on Lead Guitar and Brian Ray on Bass and Rhythm Guitar (whom are both super nice guys from what Ive seen). Both those guys use some great amps and vintage guitars and can play their asses off in that band, and solo as well. I forget if Wix on keys and extra percussion was with him Sunday, dont remember seeing him.
