This solo I think sums up what a great solo is. It was written by the great Alex Skolnick but performed by James Murphy in this vid I believe smile.gif and in my opinion is easily in the top 10 ballads ever.

Enjoy biggrin.gif I know I do

It's off the Live at the Fillmore CD. It's one of the bonus tracks as well as acoustic versions of The Legacy and Trail Of Tears smile.gif

I love Testament, and I love that song/solo..... I prefer Skolnick to Murphy but think he did an amazing job, Skolnick is not the easiest person to cover!! Great stuff from a Great Band!!

I met him at the London, UK gig and all the rest of the band. They seemed really happy to be back as the original band again. smile.gif

I haven't heard an acoustic version before. Interesting. I had the album on cassette when it came out but kinda lost track of them over the years.

That is definitely a great album. Also The Legacy album is great but a bit rawer smile.gif Glad you like it. Disciples of the Watch smile.gif
