Any rockers in the house?

What would happen if some of the greatest living guitar legends in the world, each a virtuoso in their own right, got together and collaborated on the song Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen? --A collaboration borne of the Covid-19 pandemic. --Each rock star checking their egos at the door, for the sake of the song. --What would it look like? --Or better yet, what would it SOUND like? --Here’s the answer…
[Steve Vai, Nuno Bettencourt, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tosin Abasi and Brian May VideoCollab HD - YouTube]

Certainly beats Gal Gadot’s lockdown ‘Imagine’.

It took me 90 seconds to notice that it was instrumental - I was singing along in my head.

LOL Dan…Joe Satriani and Buckethead. Just 2 more rock guitarists that easily could have made that Bohemian Rhapsody list of guitar greats. Do you have a favorite?

Oh ya, I didn’t listen to the other one. I was excited that Sammy Hagar and Mark Anthony were playing together and then I started noticing the others in the band and was blown away. Chickenfoot- what a band. There isn’t much good rock out there and if you want it you got to go look for it. They play the same shite on the radio they played when I was a kid! I can’t stomach it.

Anywho, I’m sorry to say that I have never heard of Buckethead. I like rock but I don’t know names and faces. I knew Sammy and Mark because I was a huge Van Halen fan

Gotta love the “kill switch” BH uses on his Les Pauls. Years ago there was a theory floating around some players forums that Buckethead, who allegedly has never been seen without the mask or KFC bucket, was in fact Paul Gilbert. Don’t know if that was ever dis-proven

RE:Chickenfoot…The drummer is Chad Smith from the Chili Peppers. I think at some point Joe Bonamassa was in the lineup as well.

I’m pretty sure his real name is Brian Carroll and he studied with Paul Gilbert for over a year. This video seems pretty legit.

Yeah,that video is pretty revealing. Right down to the vein on his picking hand! Who da thunk?
