My most treasured song that I’ve had the privilege to have played live and that gave me the most goose bumps was Don’t be Late by Saga. It was also the best song, hands down, that we ever pulled off and there were many of them left in the hat!
The song had it all. It was a slow ballad one minute and then all out Prog Rock insanity the next.
The first solo was one that I could almost literally squeeze the sap out of the fretboard. I milked that one for all it’s worth! It was a cross between a David Gilmore and Alex Lifeson’s Hemisphere’s influence. It almost made me cry it was just so beautiful! Then there was the second solo.
This solo was not so melancholy. It was staccato, fast and flowing. I also had to be soloing seamlessly with the keyboardist Tony, but it was a treat to play with that guy!
So here’s a song that I was infatuated with to play live and I hope you love it too!
Keep on Jammin’
