Aw, I wrote out a reply amazed that you had heard of this band, then realized it was Great White you said, and not White Lion. Oh well, it got me to find the video of Little Fighter on YouTube again. Always good for a laugh at the pro wrestling style spandex, cheesy dance moves, and awesome guitar solo (in my top 5 of all time). You'd probably like it, too. They're an obscure band that should have been bigger.

I never really got into the spandex groups of the eighties......especially the ones that also wore girls makeup. In the eighties it was Def Leppard and Night Ranger along with a heavy dose of Rush! Synthesizers were terrible in that decade....or any decade.

As far as guitar solo's go, my favorite has always been the live version of Rock Bottom by UFO's Michael Schenker. I went to see them once in my home town, but Michael was a no show.....he seemed to favor his drugs. Had he shown, I would have only been about 12 feet away from him.....oh well......

You need to listen closer to Night Ranger and Rush then. Both make heavy use of the synth. The Taurus bass pedals and the Moog and the Oberheim that Geddy plays, yup... even they fall into the synth category. Even Def Leppard used the synth for a lot of their stuff.

Being a keyboard player myself... Well, I may just be biased though. :P

Most of Rush's great music was without any synthesizers or at least had minimal use, but I get your point! Pink Floyd was the best at using these and I think they pioneered them on their album Dark Side of the Moon.

I guess my main beef with it was it's use in Pop, Disco, and some of the other horrendous music of that era. Also, I think it was just overused in the eighties to the point that I got sick of it.

There has been some great work done with synthesizers, keyboards, and the good old piano though.......I guess it just depends on the person stroking the keys!  B)  I guess I'll have to listen to your music to see what you sound like!

Play on!  :)

PS, I wrote this whole post with my guitar around my neck... :D
