Podcast #241: Solo

Remember back in the day, when all you wanted to hear was a kick ass guitar solo?  Like most of us, Genghis and Ragman would turn their noses up to bands that had deleted solos from their repertoire.  No solo, no listen; Got it, Good!  It wasn't until Sevendust, that the boys had a change of heart.  Sevendust brought such a killer groove that it made it easier to ignore that their wasn't a guy shredding at the solo break.  Join Genghis and Ragman as they discuss the power of the 80's guitar solo as well as the 90's downtuned solo-less alternative.  Next the boys are joined by ex-Dio, Dream Child axeman Craig Goldy as he discusses his band's debut release Until Death Do We Meet again.  Craig discusses the direction that he took on this record as well as reminisce about his time in Dio.
