For you oldies out there who can remember  still. The guy who was lead guitarist for Colloseum ,Clem Clemson, took some beating. The album Colloseum Live is a classic in my book. In fact Radio With Pictures ( remember that) featured their intro with the start of Skellington off of that album, with Chris Farlowe belting out the wail. I used to take this album with me to partys when living in Sydney as a youngster because I got sick of listening to Deep bloody Purple all the time. Skelington and the reverse side Lost Angeles took up the complete side of the record,and it was a double album as well. . Shut most Aussies up for a while at least.lol

Yes agree, and before he became famous in his own right, he was a member of the Wrecking Crew, as a guitarist.  That small and elite group of session musos who have backed on many great artist's work

For sheer technical ability the classical guitarist John Williams ( Englishman) was world class. He could go a full 2 hour stint from his prodigious memory, which is  mindboggling considering the material he played, which wasn't yr usual 2 bar shit.

Classical not everyone's cup of tea but I love watching him in old videos. A real craftsman at work.
