    Okay, maybe he didn't, but I need another reason to hate him besides his playing. I just got his CD "Enlightenment" in the mail. This guy is sick! Amazing player!

    I've checked out several of his recordings... impressive chops, just wondering if he's showing a little more restraint?

    He's doing mostly covers on this one, so it's tasteful chops.

    "whickitywockitybrrrrpblppnickwacknkaktok"-stuff.

    Too bad he's poorly mixed on Halford album - on the first one atleast. The rhythm guitar and bass drum go all over him. Or is it just my stereo system?

    Personally I always liked his version of stevie wonders "livin for the city", nice fretless on that one as well.
