Blah, these lists are gettin' old. I think it'd be more interesting if they'd pick the BEST solo from a single band, instead of having Yngwie, Maiden, Priest, Dio, Priest, Maiden, Yngwie, etc. etc

And "Abduction"? WTF? These people need to listen to more music...

ADD 10-01-2006 09:07 PM

Much better list:party:

Actually, I think there's something like that somewhere on the site.

By the way Abduction was only 151. ;)

Yeah, but good grief... that's not a great solo on the album it's from, let alone a greatest ever solo. Talk about settin' the bar low... ;)

:lol: I was joking. I actually haven't even heard Abduction, or any of Tyranny Of Sould for that matter.

It turns out that there are "Band pages" on the site. Which give out awhole fuckload of stats including stuff like "most popular solo, greates drum performace, etc. etc.," Although you may have to look at some of their other lists to see what they're referring too.

Here's the one for Rush, ADD.

You haven't heard Tyranny!? :eek: I thought you were supposed to be a Maiden fanb0i or something...

Aah, interest, interesting.

I guess you could say I'm a Maiden "fanboy," I'm just not a Bruce "fanboy.";)

Sidenote: I was talking to these two older guys while standing in line at Gigantour, and I told them Maiden was my all-time favorite band, and the first thing they started talking about was Bruce's solo albums.:eyes:

Maiden33 10-02-2006 06:08 AM

It's actually a decent list, but seriously, no ones ever gonna get a conclusive list. There's 387 billion guitar solos in metal, probably 100 billion or more of which are unheard by most people. Also, who's to say what makes a solo great?
