    Default Sounds Like Eruption

    I bought the Live CD "Stages" by Triumph. On the song Rock 'N Roll Machine Rik Emmett does a guitar solo with one part that sounds like Eruption. Just wondering if anyone else has this CD and heard it.

    This is one of my favourite live solos by a great Canadian guitarist! The first part is a variation of the solo in the original version (kinda sounds like Eruption). I played the solo for my wife and she thinks the tapping part is Beethoven (once again sounds like Eruption). I think it sounds more like Bach. I know the volume swelling/slow part that builds up near the end is Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King".

    Jack: DAMMIT!

    I actually go to school with Rik Emmett's son. I don't know him but I know he is his son.

    Yeah I really think Emmett is doing a rip-off of Eddie's style on the song Rock and Roll Machine. Rik is a great guitar player, but I didn't like his sound or technique on that song-he's a different type of player than Eddie and he's just not suited to that type of guitar work.
