All that whole group and no mention of one of the best and most loyal to the Rick, Dave Meros of Spock's Beard. I don't understand why this band gets NO play or respect! Their music is QUITE accessible (sp?) It really trends more towards pop than prog in my opinion. Go out and buy either "The Kindness of Strangers" or "The Light" for some GREAT Rick riffs!


Spock's Beard was already mentioned in this thread so it didn't seem necessary to add them, but Geezer Butler not being listed yet on this thread? COME ON! One of the reasons I got a ric was seeing/hearing Butler use a Red 4001 on a rendition of "Black Sabbath" and that opening riff he plays sounded soooo mean. I knew I wanted a ric.

There is a video of that performance on youtube somewhere.


Not to be argumentitive Darth, but they weren't previously mentioned in this thread. Just wanted to get his name in because he is one of the best! WM

I can see this quoting will be soon prohibited. Man o’ man.. “......................” <- few of those + prefix and suffix of the comment works well.

Cheers

I stand corrected-You mentioned them on another thread of a similar theme. So sorry I did not add them originally. I need to pick up one of their records and give it a listen.

Minor correction on one of the posts: That was Roger Waters, not D. Gilmour who played bass in Pink Floyd. Waters used a 4001S in the late '60s. Listen to the live disc from Ummagumma (1969) for a great representation. Use headphones and listen to Careful With That Axe Eugene.
