He is a good guitarist, quite a tosser though.

I watched one of his instructional dvd's that a friend lent me and he came across as everything I hate about metal, reminded me of Dream Theatre. Yet the Nevermore album I have and his solo album (zero order phase) were rather decent.

Ah yes, being a good musician certainly doesn't dismiss you from the realm of tosser - dom!

Too be honest, I don`t really like too many albums where the lead guitarist has gone off and done a solo album and indulged in his kind of thing...boring is what often comes to mind, hence I never listen to stuff by Malmsteen, Vai or Satriani to name just a few. The only album that I`ve recently listened too by some such guitarist was "Degradation Trip" by Jerry Cantrell and I think that is a great album and Jerry is also a great vocalist as well, never really got the chance in AIC.

I have to agree with that, I too don't have much time for Vai, Malmsteen ect... I have never really listened to AIC, but the few songs that I did here didn't spark much interest. Must check them out properly some other time.

AIC were never one of my favourite grunge acts either, but I`m part of a minority opinion, as they are probably the most loved grunge outfit around, especially by a lot of people on this forum.

Hi,

Hate to be so detail-oriented (aka anal), but it's spelled Iommi, not Lommi. It's easy to mistake an "I" for a small "L".

The people who wrote the first few posts of each thread are extremely knowledgeable about the respective genres, and able to communicate this knowledge in a way that's easy to understand. Well done!

Jim

I like them.... not into them nearly as much as others on this forum might, but they are pretty cool in my opinion...

I really dont feel that you could classify Rush as "Progressive Metal". They are very prog, but not metal at all for the most part
