    Somewhere there's a Davey Johnstone in this convo, too.  I'll have to find the right song . . .

    Steve Howe may be the best NON-Dino soloist of all time . . . in a ROCK context. 



    Around 8 minutes in . . .

    Robbie Krieger is another guy to consider. What besides Light My Fire should we be talking about?


    Scotty Moore, James Burton.

    And Your Bird Can Sing

    George. On 12 string.

    Ronnie Wood on Maggie May

    And you can hum it from memory.  Memorable as fuck. And that's what matters.

    Pretty much anything Robbie Blunt did with Robert Plant in the early 80s.

    Another little known Belew solo on a pop tune...

    Any love for Alain Johannes (Eleven. QOTSA) here?




  • OskyOsky Posts: 1,056
    Is he Dino or non Dino?  I wondered bout him because QOTSA can lean Dino.
    Hmmm good question, borderline maybe...he's more from the Alt Rock side...Gabrels, Belew etc but heavier. He was only in QOTSA for a year or two.

    why even with the categories, now?  we all like “Dino” artists because we grew up where 50 and 100w half stacks were de rigeur, and certain folks used those tools to great effect.  yet, Metallica has been touring with Fractal Axe FXii “amps” for years now.  maybe Belew, Lifeson and Gabrels were ahead of this 30 years ago while John Sykes was still fucking with Aqua Net and pissing in Dave’s suitcase?

    If we wanna go blatant yacht rock (which is a weakness of mine, I enjoy a lot of it) the solo on Pablo Cruise's "Love Will Find A Way" is pretty tasty.  I have no idea who played it.
    David Jenkins was the band's guitarist, according to the record jackets. I imagine he played the solo, but you never know, you know?

    I enjoyed the heck out of their Album A Place in the Sun, which had "Whatcha Gonna Do" and "Atlanta June" on it. Really tasty keys and a cool bass bass groove too.
    Death Or Glory - Who Dares Wins!

    Did I already mention the solo on Easy by The Commodores?  If I did truly sorry.  This AM I thought of another really good solo on a Non Dino song.  Ritchie Zito on Dan Hartmann's "I Can Dream About You" from Streets of Fire.  HORRIBLE movie, AMAZING music.  LOL.  Also, now and again James Honeyman-Scott from The Pretenders could lay something great down, like the solo on "Kid."  If we wanna go blatant yacht rock (which is a weakness of mine, I enjoy a lot of it) the solo on Pablo Cruise's "Love Will Find A Way" is pretty tasty.  I have no idea who played it.
    that’s a TASTY ride

    Ooh,ooh - I just thought of another one!
    The rather wonderful two-part acoustic and electric solo on Al Stewart's Year Of The Cat.

    Ah, I just checked - it's two different players, Peter White and Tim Renwick...

    We've got everything Al Stewart's ever released. A killer songwriter and acoustic guitarist. His acoustic solos are always choice ear candy.

    Is Dann Huff too Dino? The stuff he played for Faith Hill and Shania Twain is pretty tasty, whatever you think of the vocalists themselves. 
    What's in it for Me has a great slinky solo, and the lead on Man I Feel Like a Woman is fun to play.
