Ok, this might sounds as a fairly aggressive question. Did the guy ever play anything tasteful and if so, would you please point me toward the record ? He's got chops and he's happy to show them around. That's cool. I too can appreciate mindblowing lines long as it serves the purpose of the song. Problem is, each and everytime he starts soloing, it sounds to me like he ruins the tune with random wanking. Many a great player rants about Buddha dude, so I guess I must be missing something. This is NOT an ironical/mocking/trolling thread. I'm just being honest. Thanks for not flaming my rear end.
