  • Any yas like Carlos Cavazo or his sound?

    I think he was pretty good, Didn't get the heavy hitta tag of many other 80's guitar shredders.


    But his album was the first "metal" album to hit Billboard #1. And a nice run of concerts parties and babes, I am sure.


    SO what do you think of him....playing and tone.

    Might get some flamers, sure, that's okay, but don't see how you couldn't like him just a little bit. Maybe he wasn't Randy or Vitto or Eddie or George, but he did pretty dman good anyway, just goes to show ya.

    I'm looking for info on his gear....feel free to chime in if your a fanboy...Marshalls I take it?

    Was he in Quiet Riot?? If so yeah he's pretty good. Love that tone on "Bang your head" Very nice Marshall tone!

      YEah...hah...sorry I thought everyone would know!




      But it's a very smooth sound. That's not just a stock Marshall....I bet.

        I don't know anything about his gear but I would have to guess a JCM 800 of some sort he was using. Standard issue gear of that period. Though you prolly knew that already.

          I never thought Cavazo was an excellent lead player...Good but not in the league of the other top dogs of teh day but I definitely dug his tone! I thought his sound was better then a lot of other guys out at the time. That said, I'm pretty sure that cavazos tone was a marshall and a pedal. I read it a long time ago but I forget what he was using.

                Just a dude. Lucky.

                I wonder if anyone has met him.....if he's cool or what.

                  The last time I saw Quiet Riot in thier original line up a few years ago in some bar/club, I saw Carlos using JCM900's. They sounded pretty damn good and for a minute I was quite impressed but then again I'm going to assume they are modded. I have never heard another JCM900 sound like his 900's that's for sure.

                    How did you see the original lineup a few years ago? Randy Rhoads has been dead for over 20 years.

                      I'm not too familiar with that band but I saw a video of him playing the US festival (?) when i was looking for van halen US festival video footage and was really impressed. A solid rock player.
                      I was especially impressed when he got up on kevin's (? singer?) shoulders and played. i could not DO that. I'd be too busy holding my arms out for balance.

                      Thats all i know about him or the band.

                        EXCUSE ME, the original lineup circa 1980's. I had forgotten Randy was in QR before they got huge, it's a shame he never tasted success that was to follow with QR while he was working with Ozzy. What was cool about that show I saw though, they did do a tribute song to Randy. Very cool, they did put on a hellavu show too, they were very tight and had a good sound guy to boot.

                          Carlos was pretty good for what he was. After all he was second choice to Rhoads after he left for Oz. Im pretty sure most of QR's first release was written by Rhoads as well. However he had his own style which was not of the same caliber as RR but he still rocked. Now Kevin D. was a complete waste.

                            one thing about Carlos - always too much reverb in his lead tones. Drives me nuts when I hear it. He played mostly Gibsons back in the day I think. Then he has played Jackson soloists for many years now.
