My Favourite Solo

Prog - - Intro - By Ge­off Downes (YES)

“Keith emer­son is the big­gest in­flu­ence on me – i re­mem­ber see­ing the nice at the isle of wight fes­ti­val and be­ing blown away. But my favourite solo is david sin­clair’s solo in nine feet Un­der­ground by Car­a­van. it’s quite long – maybe four min­utes – and it’s not a blow­ing solo, but it cre­ates this won­der­ful at­mos­phere that keeps on de­vel­op­ing. and it’s very orig­i­nal – it has a lot of fuzzbox and wah-wah that creeps in and out, al­most like he’s singing it. david is the op­po­site of Keith – very re­served, sit­ting down not jump­ing around like a mad­man. But he got a magic sound." DEV
