Re: KAYBD vid with Satriani


 I'm afraid to look for the cringe-factor of the vocals, not to mention that it's probably just another toneless widdlefest from a guitar point of view.
KAYBD was never a Gillan forte' from a live perspective.

Re: KAYBD vid with Satriani


I absolutely love the versions of KAYBD with Satriani. In fact, I loved his performances with the band more than any other guitarist except Blackmore. I think he fit in more with the overall Purple style than Morse has.

Actually, IMHO, Satriani, from what I've seen on youtube, is really rather good! Nice tone, nowhere near the widdle factor you might expect, and far more bluesy than Mr M. Check out his WABMC, too. It's great.

Re: KAYBD vid with Satriani


As I expected the former Deep Purple guitarist, Joe Satriani has that metallic edge, much better than Steve Morse.

Its up to you Dudes.

A guitarist who play like Jimi Hendrix???

...or...

A guitarist who play like Chet Atkins, Johnny Cash and Al Di Meola???

The choice is yours.

 [sign in to see URL] the possibility of having a nail driven through my head is a threat, like Gillans shrieking vocals have done to me, I avoid it like the plague. There is a huge difference between Rock music and screetching. One is tolerable and the other isn't.

 So, according to your wisdom, if the performance is the same, the critique should change? Is that correct? I'm trying to find some way to give you the benefit of the doubt here.
 However, your usage of the word 'script' here seems to be out of place. A critique is generally not considered a script, the performance that a critic is reviewing may be considered 'scripted' and if that script doesn't change and the performance of said script is still horrible, the critique will not change.
 Unless of course you are referring to the scripted performances of Deep Purple, in which case I wholeheartedly agree that it is time for a re-write of that tired, boring, self indulgent, widdle filled, screetch factor, monotonous script.

 80's shred metal hasn't changed and Satriani was a leader in that genre and to my ears, it all, and I mean with no exceptions, was nothing more than a 'white noise widdlefest'.

 In my opinion, which I never claim to be humble either, Gillans studio version of most everything on the Perfect Strangers album is strained and screetchy at best with KAYBD being one of the worst offenders. His live performances of everything since 84' has been nothing short of terrible, with every song he sang being much worse than the original and each nights peformance being worse for wear than the night before.

Re: KAYBD vid with Satriani


 A couple of points to be made here:

1) The script I refer to is the one you've been continually using for months now in order to further your 'Gillan Bashing' agenda. I'm curious as to what exactly it is you hope to [sign in to see URL] anyone had their opinion changed via your campaign? As always, I'm one of the first to defend one's right to express an opinion, but you've been stretching that right to the point where it's infringing on others' right not to have it thrust continually into their faces - particularly in topics where it's not the [sign in to see URL] rght in this topic, for instance.
 This thread/topic is about Satriani playing with Purple.
 Cease & desist with the thread/topic hijackings and start your own topic regarding your 'Gillan critique(s)' & respectfully confine your opinions to [sign in to see URL]'d be merely polite & respectful of your fellow forum members to do so.

2) As far as Satriani being a leader in the "'80's shred metal genre" - I think you have him confused with some fella named Malmsteen. emoticon But, to each their own preference - we can agree to disagree.

3) This 'history' being on your side reasoning behind criticizing something you refuse to [sign in to see URL] to be possibly a bit narrow and or close-minded on the [sign in to see URL] that I think there'd be any chance of you vieing the piece with any degree of objectivity [sign in to see URL] your logic here has a hole in it that an aircraft carrier could fit comfortably through. emoticon

4) I suggest a brush up course on word definitions, [sign in to see URL] continual use of absolute words such as 'everything', 'never', 'nothing' & their ilk displays an unreasonable or virtually closed state of mind - which one is entitled to have, no problem with that, it's one's right to be that way should one wish; it's when one is forcing that unreasoning, close-mindedness on others that it becomes a [sign in to see URL], do me & others here a favor - solve the problem yourself, as any reasonable, rational & generally acceptable solution you put into action on your own will almost undoubtedly be far more satisfactory to you than any solution that someone or anyone else has to implement.

Re: KAYBD vid with Satriani


I always thought KAYBD was such an anti-climax. The intro is fantastic, but as soon as the singing starts its incredibly average and not even fitting with the mood of the intro.
