“You couldn’t not like someone who liked the guitar”

So said my favorite author Stephen King in one of his landmark novels, “The Stand”. And boy we love the guitar throughout BAB’s esteemed halls. And why not?! There are so many outstanding solos to choose from. Speaking of which, “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin racked up yet another “greatest guitar solo” award recently.
While a great piece of work by Mr. Page, it does not rank among my favorites.
Some of my picks include,…
How about you? Does ‘Stairway’ rank among your favorite guitar solos? If so, where? If not, give me your picks.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
