Ok, I have found a guilty pleasure. Playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, I have fallen in love with the soundtracks of some of the Emotion 98.3 station, some of the Flash station, most of the Wave 103 station and of course the VRock station.

Most of these songs I have come to know by heart by playing this game so long. Some I hated at first and then grew to love simply because of the game. There are quite a few up there I should be ashamed of, lol. Sorry for the long post, but Rockstar definatly outdid themselves with this game by adding in all this music from the 80's to make the game really feel like it takes place during that time.

 

*Rockstar's Lovefist is a fictitous band in the game that plays a part of the story. During one scene in the game, the drummer is refered to as The Professor for diffusing a car bomb (where have I heard this before)

Nice, moon. Love that game...I have completed 99% of it...I'm stuck on one lousy stunt jump! I was going to start a thread about the upcoming GTA: San Andreas!

Heh, took me a while but I got 100%, that Apache Helichopter (spelled correctly #$!% it laugh.gif) is a lot of fun to fly around and shoot things with.

Lol sorry, I rather liked my post though tongue.gif

It was quite nice, and informative, too. icon_really_happy_guy.gif

 

You pad your post-count, I pad my post-count. You're never gonna catch me this way! icon_really_happy_guy.gif

Lol, thats not my intention, slow and steady wins the race.

 

Getting back on topic, I think all the best guitar/singer duos have been put up, how about the best guitar/singers as the same person?

 

I am rather fond of:

Pete Townshend - The Who, solo stuffs

David Gilmour - Pink Floyd

Paul McCartney or John Lennon, either works - The Beatles

Jon Anderson (to an extent, I saw him play guitar sarcasm.gif ) - Yes

Ian Anderson - Jethro Tull

Curt Kobain - Nirvana

Brad Nowell - Sublime

Jimi Hendrix - Himself

 

I'm sure you all can find more.

I haven't even seen his name brought up yet so how about Syd Barret and Syd Barret. Syd's voice was so good and when he joined the band in '65' Water's was told to start playing bass so Syd could play guitar. Original Pink Floyd IMO is still way better than anything released since then, except maybe Animals. Syd could also play a wide array of other instruments, I think on 'Live at Pompeii' he only plays piano with very wide eyes.

Umm...... Syd WAS (is) a talented, troubled individual, but that's Rick Wright at Pompeii. Syd was long gone by then.

What about Steve Vai...or Randy Rhoads.. 2 GREAT guitarists!

The angel.gif Immortal Randy Rhoads angel.gif was mentioned in the first post w/ Ozzy.

Vai is great, but who would he be paired with? David Lee Roth maybe? He did one album with him I think...

We've slipped slightly off-thread here. We're trying to compile a list of the best lead guitarist/lead vocalist (non-main-instrument playing) combo.

I forget though, are we also adding best dual lead guitarists to this or will that be a separate thread? The Allman Bros. Band would be a good addition to that list.

This doesn't really fit the criteria, since Boston had (has?) two guitarists, but I've always been partial to Brad Delp and Tom Scholz.

Ok, here's a few. (It's amazing how much you can recall AFTER the fact of a brain-storming session.)

Pat Benatar/Neil Geraldo (let's not forget the ladies)
David Bowie/Mick Ronson (see above  laugh.gif )
Ray Davies/Dave Davies of The Kinks
Rod Stewart/Ron Wood of The Faces

Ok, I guess we should consider-

Jon Anderson/Steve Howe

- because Jon is definitely a lead singer/frontman, and although Steve works primarily within the framework of the Yes ensemble, he is definitely a guitar legend (and darn old-looking, too! Have you seen this dude lately?  ohmy.gif  laugh.gif )

I saw Yes a couple of months ago and Steve looked ANCIENT! Gordie Howe looks younger than him... rofl3.gif

 

 

P.S. for those of u who don't know who Gordie Howe is, he's a Hall of Fame hockey player who is now 80 i believe...
