Crobot is the sort of band that you can’t help but love. They are everything great about rock n’roll music: heavy guitar solos, wailing vocals, and a bit of humor mixed in for good measure. The Pottsville, Pennsylvania band is on the heels of the release of their new album Welcome to Fat City (9/23) as well as playing with acts like Sevendust, Avenged Sevenfold, and Black Sabbath. Typically we lean more to the mellow folk and indie rock, these guys were great enough to help us with a creative piece that was just too good to pass up. We asked the guys to list their top face shredding guitar solos. The rockers were more than willing to provide us with an impressive and surprising list. Check it out, and while you’re at it, check out their lead single “Plague of the Mammoths” below. We guarantee you will feel something.
Audley Freed- Cry of Love “Sunday morning flood”I’m a sucker for slow blues solos and this one is one of the best… By my favorite guitar player.Tom Morello- Rage Against the Machine “freedom”I love tom Morellos playing and this solo is his most melodic in my opinion. Simple and memorable. Perfect for the song.Jimi Hendrix- Band of Gypsys “who knows”Most people say Machine gun is the best from this album and I love that song as well but who knows is much more my style. Funky. Love the dynamic session when JImi comes back and that octave fuzz slowly starts cutting through.Jimmy page- Led Zeppelin “heartbreaker”Classic Jimmy Page. I can almost hear the cocaine through his fingers…Gary Rossington- Lynyrd Skynyrd “I know a little”One of the best opening solos in a song period. Played so clean and with such fineness.
