      Adrian Smith has to be one of the most underrated guitar players I know of...

      he's killer..he might not be a ripper like Vai or anyone like that, but show me one solo that isn't tasteful and doesn't fit...I DEFY YOU TO FIND ONE! lol...

      and his vibrato....to die for, man...

      he's always been one of my favorites, ever since I was about 12 years old...great guitar player..

        Yeah, one of the best Maiden solos, and Harris's bass under it, man.

            you're right! his tone is killer and he's a great player, no two ways about it...

              Murray and Smith compliment each other so damn well. Murray has that ridiculously fluid legato style, while Smith has a real staccato lead approach. You can always tell who's playing a solo. Watching Dave Murray toggle pickup postions like crazy during left hand hammers and pulls is too badass. m/

                you're right about complimenting...they cut their teeth together and they meshed since day one..

                while I find Murray to get too samey too quick, he does have his little nitch in the band..he is ridiculously fluid =)

                  No complaints on any of the tracks from Somewhere inTime....a kick arse album.

                  Was gonna listy my favorites when I realized the only song that might not make it on to the list is De Ja Vu. ;-)

                      I like everything off that album. I still remember picking it up after school the day it came out. Damn, that was awhile ago...I was in Junior High..

                        It's sad that Adrian is pretty much designated to rhythm guitar while Janick "Prancing Homo" Gers takes 99% of his former leadwork....

                              ugh..don't even get me started....that dude blows....his tone sucks, his leads suck, his dancing sucks....

                              why they kept him in the band is beyond me..why bruce ever hooked up with such a sub par guitar player when he started doing his solo thing is beyond me..

                              man..just horrible

                              when I saw them at MSG, not only did Jerkoff, I mean, Janick start in with the opening riff of Two Minutes, he played the lead as well! I was PISSED!
