Also....what is your favorite Criss solo? Mine is either Follow Me, Ghost in the Ruins, Hounds, Belive, SUMMER'S RAIN all the way......
I caught one of Criss's last shows, and was blown away by his sheer energy & finesse. He was a true genuis who had an uncanny ability to write and perform a solo that would blow you away in just about any song he did.
How to choose, how to choose?
Here are a few of my faves:
Ghost in the Ruins--builds up slowly to a massive crescendo
She's In Love--for full, all out intensity
He Carves His Stone
Silk & Steel--one of the most beautiful instrumentals I've ever heard
Let's face it--every solo on Gutter Ballet was a classic.
Unfortunately, where I live, Savatage doesn't have anywhere near the attention it should. And Criss was a forgotten master of guitar. But his legacy lives on in some of the most powerful music you will ever want to hear.
I still miss you, Criss.
