Drum Solo’s and any other solo’s except for Guitars

The backbone of any group the drummer.

Surely this has to be the best drum solo of all time.

Putting this in as a violin solo. I know it’s not strictly a solo but Vanessa Mae is so stunningly beautiful I thought I’d get away with it :oops:

People spend hundreds if not thousands of pounds for 'hair recovery' treatments and what for? All you need is Swiss chocolate :)

Sax!!!!! :shock: 8) *melts*

Nooooooo! Organs!!! :roll: :shock: :shock:

OK - I give in! I wasn't going to post in here or the other old rockers memorabilia threads but I'm a sucker for sax solos... :roll:

This one has everything more or less so they're not solos as such but the drums, guitar and piano just meld and there's that lyrical almost feral sax winding in and out of it all

Plus you don't have to look at Bryan Ferry (something very repellent about him - especially when he moves :? Definitely some snake in there... :evil: )

I have broad shoulders Jan so I don't mind being called old. Not sure how the others will take it :lol:

If you're going to put posts on of that quality please will you continue to pop in from time to time.

Oh and no point sucking a sax you have to blow a sax :oops:

Depends on what sorta sax you got in front of you old chap. :wink: :twisted:

On the age front I was mainly referring to the artistes - I apologise to Kladivo as I'm not so sure of his antiquity (although I'm guessing he won't see 30 or even 40 again) but I know I'm in the same age bracket as you and smartypants over in the land of the rising sun. 8)

We were the lucky ones who watched rock grow up and enter a 2nd childhood :lol:

"Restless Heart Syndrome"

I've got a really bad disease
It's got me begging on my hands and knees
So, take me to emergency
Cause something seems to be missing
Somebody take the pain away
It's like an ulcer bleeding in my brain
So send me to the pharmacy so I can lose my memory

I'm elated, medicated
Lord knows I tried to find a way to run away

I think they found another cure
For broken hearts and feeling insecure
You'd be surprised what I endure
What makes you feel so self-assured

I need to find a place to hide
You never know what could be waiting outside
The accidents that you could find
It's like some kind of suicide

So what ails you, is what impales you
I feel like I've been crucified to be satisfied

I'm a victim of my symptom
I am my own worst enemy
You're a victim of your symptom
You are your own worst enemy
Know your enemy

I'm elated, medicated
I am my own worst enemy
So what ails you is what impales you
You are your own worst enemy
You're a victim of the system

We are young
heartache to heartache we stand
No promises no demands
Love is a battlefield.

We are strong
no-one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield.

You're begging me to go
then making me stay -
Why do you hurt me so bad?
It would help me to know
do I stand in your way
Or am I the best thing you've had?
Believe me
believe me
I can't tell you why
But I'm trapped by your love
and I'm chained to your side.

We are young
heartache to heartache we stand
no promises, no demads
love is a battlefeild

When I'm losing control
will you turn me away
or touch me deep inside'
And when all this gets old
will it still feel the same?
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer
I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders you'll need me to hold.

We are young
heartache to heartache we stand - blah... blah... blah.... :roll:

Nice strong drums in this too.... *makes minor concession to suitablility for thread* :oops:

nice whistling too! :wink:

We were the lucky ones Jan. I go back to 1963 for my first music memory.

That was seeing The Beatles first UK TV appearance. I knew that things would never be same after that.

I’m surprised you put Pooh in the same age bracket as you and me. I thought he was much younger. Although I am ignoring his ‘’Some of us like songs recorded this century’’ comment. PMSL :lol: :lol: :lol:

My choice for Bass solo is going to be hard to beat. Jon Entwistle is acknowledged by many to be the finest bass player ever. I think this solo performance only serves to confirm that opinion.
