    Mine are "Trick of the Light" by The Who, and "Achilles Last Stand" by Led Zeppelin.

    "Success Story" when The John Entwistle Band played it live. Of course, there's an 8-string Rickenbacker solo in the "Who By Numbers" studio version, but it's harder to hear.

    The title track from Material's Memory Serves album, played by Bill Laswell on an Ibanez ST-980.

  6. The 8 string plays the main riff throughout the studio version too. Not sure if the solo's an 8 though...

    JE's solo 'Dancing Master' uses the Alembic 8 String in the solo.
    I really like Doug Pinnick's intro to 'Out of the Silent Planet'.

    Its not 8, but Wherever I May Roam. Newstead recorded it on a 12-string
