My turn, and the topic this week is... Top 5 Best Guitarists Of The 80's
But.....there's one rule: The guitarist must not have appeared on a "debut-record" earlier than 1/1-1980 and not later than 31/12-1989.
5. Jake E. Lee (Debut with Rough Cutt in 1981)
4. Steve Vai (Debut on Frank Zappa's "Tinseltown Rebellion" 1981)
3. George Lynch (Debut on Dokken's "Breaking The Chains" 1983)
2. Ty Tabor ( Debut on "Sneak Preview" 1983(? not sure if this was an official release?))
1. Nuno Bettencourt ( Debut on "Extreme" 1989)
And now it's YOUR turn to come up with something better, if you can!!
I think we ended up with a good solid list that represents. Admittingly, I'm not very familiar with John Sykes. I've heard a little Thin Lizzy, but I was never of fan of David Coverdale's vocals, so I stayed away from the Whitesnake. He obviously good, he was named on a lot of lists & earned the top spot! I'm familiar with the other 4, all are Amazing!!!
