We Will Rock You

Let’s cut right to the chase. Last night’s Perfect Moment was getting to see and hear Brian May of Queen’s mini guitar solo (this isn’t the right word for it, but I am not particularly musical in nature and don’t have the correct vocabulary.  If you do, please provide it for me) during We Will Rock You.

There are some great guitar moments that I wish I could see and hear live. The one’s I have been witness to are Pete Townsend on Pinball Wizard, Slash on Welcome to the Jungle, and Robert Baker on New Orleans’s Sinking.  The ones, I wish I could have witnessed would have been  Jimi Hendrix (on almost anything) but Are You Experienced jumps out at me. Or Jimmy Page on Whole Lotta Love and Dazed and Confused.

The concert was great and despite leaving me a walking zombie today, I am so glad I went.

  1. Mini (or short) guitar solo is just fine. You’ve seen some mighty fine guitar moments! Myself, I wouldn’t say no to witnessing Townsend or Slash. Or Page. Never been a Hendrix fan, though I absolutely recognize & appreciate his talents. I like watching Perry (plus Aerosmith) on youtube. Or Keith Richards of course.
