Now wait a minute!!!
What's wrong with EVH fans!?!!?
Eruption deserves to be at least #3 on this list!
Eruption is TRULY one of the greatest guitar solos of all time!
It inspired many of today's great players.

that's all it is dude, a solo that doesnt mean shit, doesn't tell a story doesn't do jack. None of my friends rate that type of stuff as well.

avatar

Hendrix197O

Well to be honest darling, your friends are into Broadway show tunes.. so they really aren't the best judge when it comes to rating guitar solos.

I on the other hand think that Eruption DOES tell a story.. a story about a guy who is f**king shreddin' his ass off on the motherf***king guitar!!!

Proven point right there with your nerdy childish immature response, I expected that though, sadly.

Hendrix197O

You’re stepping out of character there, luv. We discussed all of this at great lengths right before you came on here to begin this 'performance art' project of your’s. You are to take on the roll as this forum’s troll, posting insults, homophobic slurs, and childish remarks hoping to incite an angry response. You're not allowed to break character and suddenly try to take on the roll as the bastion of maturity on here.. it simply doesn't work and no one will ever believe it! These are the very rules that YOU set for this Craig, and you need to follow them in order for this project to be a success.

Now get your cute little ass back out there and snap right back into character mister!

faggot. you loose when you type back huge paragraphs like that queer boy.

Hendrix197O

Hey hon’, the faucet in the guest bathroom is still leaking.. when is that plumber that you called going to come over? In the meantime, we should probably move our guitars out of the guest room just in case it gets worse. Oh and the neighbours called again, you need to remember to turn down the amp when you practice, ok?

avatar

Hendrix1970

Your comment about eruption really was the icing on the cake for me. Read it back to yourself, obviously a kid.

avatar

Hendrix197O

But you always told you that the icing on the cake for you was my lean build and tanned body. Make up your mind already, luv.

So when is that plumber coming?

avatar

Hendrix1970

you really should be using proxies or some sort of a i.p masker eh? You'll find out how to be really trolled, don't worry queen queer, it'll be okay..

avatar

Hendrix197O

Sweetie you know our relationship has always been about being open and sharing with others.. so PLEASE feel free to share all of my info with everyone. I officially give you permission, just like I officially gave you permission last night to share me with Trent (Which was sooooo wonderful, btw)

avatar

Hendrix1970

Cheers, i'll save that message just incase.

avatar

Hendrix197O

Yes, you should probably save it in that hope chest that you keep near our bed. So.. are you going to share with everyone on here or not?

Smoooooooooooch! I can’t stop thinking of what we did last night with Trent!

avatar

Hendrix1970

On here? What would that achieve? no one cares about you here lol queer dude.

avatar

Hendrix197O

Awwww you're not going to share? You've always been such the tease (one of your many turn-ons)!

I do hope that plumber gets here soon; the water that’s leaking from our faucet is now red in colour. I fear our pipes might be rusted.

avatar

Hendrix1970

You deserve to be arrested for being a queer potty-mouth.

avatar

Hendrix197O

...and you're just the man to do it, eh mate? Ok luv, we can go back to the role playing again. Tell you what, you take on the role of the copper who arrests me and I'll take on the role of.. 'John' the guitar player from my favourite band Grafitti.

Ok, I'm ready for my 'one on one private interrogation' Officer Studly! Don't be too rough on me sir (even though I've been very bad and need to be disciplined by you).

avatar

Hendrix1970

No... you're just the plain old queen queer, that no one likes. lol. Russia has the right idea about you filthy queers!

avatar

Hendrix197O

Mmmmmm.. do you have any idea how sexy you are when you talk to me like that? We really do make a great team!

avatar

So, let me get try and understand this a bit better, this is a "Poll" where people get the chance to vote for their own favorite choice, and yet you guys think that if people vote for something you don't like then there's a problem?
Also, if you're a Queen fan / Brian May fan that must mean you're Queer?
How backward are you?

avatar

Hendrix1970

Most of their fans are middle aged woman who think gays are beautiful. Even ones with aids.

avatar

Hendrix197O

OMG you are soooooo damn cute when you put on that homophobic persona of your's sweetie! I could just eat you up.. yum!

We're getting upset when non-readers from facebook are flooding the poll of a "GW Reader's Poll" Many of my favorites have gone down, the only ones I get annoyed at is the Queen Facebook page making its presence and voting blind. If you read the comments on facebook, most don't even know it's about the guitar solo, they're voting for just the band. Well, I'm still perplexed on how the hell Whole Lotta Love beat November Rain's solo, but again the facebook comments show people voting for the band and not the solo.

What is wrong with the people voting in these polls?

avatar

Hendrix1970

eddy van halen twits or metalers in general sums it up really. Oh and people that have a unhealthy obsession with Queen(?).

avatar

Darth Compton

I wonder if they're taking the time to fix it so you actually have to sign in as a member to vote, rather than legions of Queen fans ruining it for the members. :P

avatar

SamiEndler

That was my suggestion also.
GW could restart the whole poll (and the one with the greatest guitarists!!!) only for members.

avatar

LoQ

It wouldn't really matter. It takes like 20 seconds to sign up as a member and judging from the matchups from this "readers" poll (and from the previous one too), the members of the Queen Facebook obviously have PLENTY of time of their hands.

First left is only Led Zeppelin. First right Eruption and little wing. Eruption will go against Led Zeppelin S2H.
Brighton Rock will kill Hotel Keli and Wmggw's will die to one.
The second left Queen will show Pink and Freebird wins no more tears.
SIBLY will beat Crowely and Voodoo Child will lose to whole lotta love.

Stairway will lose to Eruption
One will beat Queen
Queen will beat Freebird
Led Zeppelin vs Led Zeppelin wow

One Vs Eruption
Bohemian Vs Whole lotta of love

Eruption V Bohemian WINNER Eruption

Hendrix1970

If you are right(which you definately could be) then there is something really wrong with you people voting. all the queen retarded queers as well, stop ruining it, don't get your pink lycra in a bunch... Brian may isn't even a top 20 guitar player to be kind.
