    Keep listening, Vronsky. There's some great music on Metal Fatigue. Home is a gorgeous ballad with a beautiful melody and acoustic guitar solo. The UnMerry Go Round is another brilliant composition with two sublime guitar solos. And Devil Take The Hindmost is beyond description. To my ears it's the most incredible electric guitar playing I've ever experienced. And I don't mean the technique alone, but the originality and depth of musicality boggles my mind. And I'm someone who played guitar and studied his book, Reaching For The Uncommon Chord.

    It's cool that there is comprehensive Holdsworth box. But I can't imagine trying get a handle on that much of his music all at once. I acquired these albums over a 15 year period as they were released. It's too bad they chose that title for the box. Allan hated it. Happy listening!

    This always makes me cry. It's been so long since I've seen this movie.

    Which of the twelve CDs would you consider essential if you weren't getting them all?

    It depends on your taste? Some fans don't like the albums with the synthaxe, but it never bothered me. One of those is Sand which I feel contains some if his best material. If you want something closer to jazz and less rock fusion I recommend The Sixteen Men Of Tain, or None Too Soon. Those are all instrumental with a bit more jazz feel. None Too Soon is his only album of modern jazz standards. He plays some Joe Henderson, Bill Evans, Coltrane, Django, and a couple originals. I know you're not big on vocals so avoid IOU, Road Games, and Metal Fatigue.

    If you want more bang for your buck, get the new 2 disc compilation Eidolon. This gives you 28 tracks and it's 90 percent instrumental. And the vocal tunes are actually really good. One of them is Against The Clock with some great drumming by Vinnie Colaiuta.

    Watching a video of Lady Gaga singing Sinatra. It reminds me of a quote by Rebecca Howe on Cheers: I want to be so rich that I can stink and nobody will tell me." Now I finally understand what she meant.
