    Barry has played for Yngwie Malmsteen, Vinnie Moore, Scorpions, Dokken, and UFO, among other notable hard rock acts. His chops are ridiculous. I love his playing, and here is some close-up footage of him in action.

    I watch clips like this and I wish I was a finger player. Same as when I watch Steve Harris clips!

    Ha! I was watching a Yes concert this afternoon and, although I definitely have good pick technique, I'll never be Squire. That's OK, though, because watching him makes me want to play, and that's what it's all about.
