La Villa Strangiato ("Rio" Version vs. R30)

Post by CygnusX1 » Fri Jan 13, 2006 11:59 am

Anyone catch the differences in Alex's playing of "La Villa"on the R30 archive video and on the "Rio" performance?

The R30 archived footage shows Alex at the time of its release, playing a relatively conservative tune, staying with the album...

On "Rio", he shreds it....spicing it up with cool fills and speed...I can understand that --after playing it for YEARS, but the difference is astounding...I really dig the latter version....They did it that way at the Vapor Trails show...

The more I watch it, the more I see that Alex is NOT a conventional guitarist...He plays it HIS way, and that's what sets Lerxt aside from all the others...

Siggy

Alex started really shredding this song up as far back as the Exit...Stage Left live album, particularly the beginning.

I haven't picked up the R30 DVD yet. Me too poor. Bills. Cost of living. :(

I find almost everything Alex does, he does better live. And I LOVE watching it.

Peter Frampton talked about that... being able to play better live than in the studio. He feeds of the audience energy. I can understand that.

I liked Frampton....Especially when I saw him playing for Bowie on the Ziggy Stardust Reunion Tour some years ago...Too bad he couldn't follow the success of FCA...

He was still sharp as ever....He had another punk-looking dude playing rhythm that was awesome too...

You're welcome. I always line up the mp3 of "One Little Victory" and the movie, and see if I can re-create the effect. Brings me chills everytime.
