Is he? (A pain I meant)... I do love his Blackmore's Night (not surprising as I love mediaeval and renaissance music and most of his Blackmore's Night stuff is his own interpretation of traditional renaissance and older pieces).

He is quite apt to throw tantrums. He stormed off stage the last time I saw him when he had the band Rainbow. He had a speaker issue, walked off and wouldn't come back.

He is an amazing musician. I saw one clip of Blackmore's Night and it seemed a bit like Spinal Tap (I expected the baby Stonehenge to be lowered). I will give it another listen as I do like music from that time period. Any song suggestions?

It really depends a lot on your taste. There's an entirely instrumental album (Blackmore's Kingdom, from 1998), I would say it has the most ''traditional" sound. They have faster tunes and slower tunes, more contemporary ones and more "olden" ones.

This is a very traditional one:




This for example is an Alfonso El Sabio tune:







This one I like possibly for the lyrics more than for the music (which I also like).

So yeah, it really depends on your tastes; I myself like almost all their songsSmile

RE: The official *GUITAR GODS* thread
All the people listed so far plus the following:


John Frusciante (RHCP). He's got an Eddie Van Halen style, where it's not his speed or complexity that stuns you, it's his familiarity with the guitar, like it's an extension of himself.


Randy Rhoads was already mentioned, but let's not forget Zakk Wylde did a damn fine job replacing him.


And my personal input, Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) doesn't play "guitar solos," he takes you on a trippy journey through space and time. It almost sounds like Cornell is singing to the song and Kim makes the song sing back to him.

I'm listening to Black Label Society right now and was going to mention Zakk Wylde. Good call!
