    MQ: I really wish there was a video on Youtube of Jimi Hendrix playing Red House from the Hendrix in the West album. I've been listening to music since I was in diapers over 50 years ago and I swear I've never ever heard a solo that can come close to that one. If you have that album in your collection, which I'm going to guess a guy in your line of work does, check it out one more time and listen close. BQ: Jimi Hendrix Trey Azagoth from Morbid Angel Chuck Schuldeiner from Death Robert Johnson Eric Clapton Eddie Van Halen on and on this list could go... BQ2: Stanley Clark from Chic Chorea and the Return to Forever band. Bootsy Collins from James Brown and Parliment Funkadelic BQ3: I play guitar a little bit but really not being modest when I say its nothing worth writing home about. I enjoy it and on a rare occasion others do to, but more often than not they prefer I use head phones.

    Riff- The Bends by Radiohead

    Solo- The Fly by U2

    There's loads of riffs I love actually but the solo in The Fly gives me goosebumps all up one leg then over the top of me 'ead. Wish U2 would buck their bloody ideas up and make 'em like this again. Ho hum.
