Thread: Great Bands that NEVER changed lead guitar

Ha, ha - I'm sure this list is long. I'll start:

Rush - Alex Lifeson


Joe_the_Lurker - 5/18/2017 at 05:43 PM

The Heartbreakers - Mike Campbell
Journey - Neal Schon


tiderule1 - 5/18/2017 at 06:19 PM

AC/DC - Angus Young


JimSheridan - 5/18/2017 at 06:59 PM

Black Sabbath - Tony Iommi

I caught the Who in 1996, I believe, when they brought on the full performance of "Quadrophenia." It was at a time when Pete T was struggling with hearing issues, so he was playing acoustic the whole time while they had a second guitarist playing the leads. The music was so great that it worked out OK, but I sure missed hearing Pete thwack the electric guit.

In order to like those albums better you have to like Ian Anderson. I don't, He took Tull from be a potentially great band, to being an ordinary average band.


Zambi - 5/22/2017 at 02:42 PM

Dregs. For that matter, Steve Morse Band.

It's all in what people hear/like -- Stand Up, This Was, Benefit -- but I really like Aqualung & Thick as a Brick too -- same Warchild, Minstrels, Too Old To Rock altho the early ones can't be topped.......Tull, Ian -- they both rock -- they're 1 & the same I guess

Walter Becker is an obvious one -- at least I think he's been there all along

Well you're correct that Walter Becker has been with Steely Dan since day one but in the early years he played bass. Jeff Skunk Baxter handled lead guitar duties.
