I think its cool that the band keeps him around so they could be a six piece, but I could live without him stealing (butchering) Adrian Smith's solos.

I would like it very much if he just quit the band and didn't have to steal solos from the guys who fucking wrote them.

Because I thought this would give a chance for other guitarists to talk about his technique. I was slightly inspired by the Metal Sludge board where there was a discussion going on of how sloppy he was vs. he's a better player than Adrian (yes I actually heard that). So I figured putting it here would put the playing details up for discussion.

Because Janick is a musician that should be starving?

Adrian offers them to him, he doesn't steal them

Fair enough.

Janick is a decent soloist when he wants to be. Most of his album solos are quite good, especially on slower numbers like Blood Brothers and Wasting Love. However, live Janick is a horrible soloist 90% of the time. Check Death on the Road for proof. His Paschendale, Dance of Death, and a few other solos are just... bleh on there. Also, I'm just bitter because he still plays many of H's solos and just slaughters them.

I would really like to hit the Cleveland show also, but that 7 hour drive keeps getting in the way. :mad:

Other than FOTD is he just pretending?

This tour Janick plays:

his Fear of the Dark solo (naturally)
and H's solos in:
Moonchild
Revelations
Heaven Can Wait
The Trooper (with H)

that's it I believe... now if they just phase him out a little more things will be perfect.

a) Doesn't he play H's spot on Hallowed too?

b) If he plays along with Adrian on the Trooper why the hell can't he just do tht with all of Adrian's other solos?

a) Yeah, I forgot that

b) My guess is because Janick plays solos NOTHING like the originals on every solo except The Trooper.

Janick does a good job on Moonchild IMO. But I think he should give back Heaven Can Wait and/or Revelations.

Yeah he certainly does Moonchild better than most of the other solos of H's, but that's not saying much.
