Doc did an excellent job, exactly what would be expected from an artist of his caliber and prestige.


PERFECT guitar solo. Hit the brief amazingly & came up with very intelligently thought out layered guitar lines (not rushed!) Cool to have a guest solo on my record from someone who I have listened to many times on CD & also seen in concert many years ago. Good job! Cheers! - EYES
