never heard marathon to be honest, but lifesons solos rule
17. "More Than a Feeling" by Boston
Soloist: Tom Scholz
Are they men or machines? Musicians or mathematicians? Girlish MIT grads do not good rockers make. These second rate lab- coats squeezed the lifeblood out of rock while making millions in the process. They loved that dated guitar harmonizing thing, which is about as interesting, if you think about it, as watching synchronized swimming. Somehow this solo always makes me think of of getting a cavity filled. It causes that bitter metallic taste to resurface in my mouth. Then my mind fills with the high- pitched buzz of a dentist's drill. That's the beauty of Boston, baby
This guy does suck, this is a good solo, sure its not complex, or fast, but its a mellow solo, those are just as good, the solo has to match the song not just blast off hardocre rock in the middle of some slow trash.
socrpions also appearing on this list.. this guy need to buy some brains, probly likes "solos" by that sorry excuse for a player from red hot chili peppers.
