he is a weird cat for sure (mind you most of us guitarists are really) .... he has a weird driven, sugar rush energy thing going on (listen to this podcast https://player.fm/series/no-guitar-is-s ... e-lukather )

I'm going to say :thumbup: just because he freaks me out a bit :rofl:

Steve says "I'm not out there trying to blow everybodys mind like im the best guitar player in the world. Because I'm not. I'm not even close. I'm a journey man guitar player. And I'm proud to be that. I'm the guy you call to fix shit or fucking come up with a part...."


That makes absolute sense in the context of his session work and the G3 stuff I've seen. He is not a technical wizard by any means, but he's recorded some incredible solos.

Saw him at G3, no idea who he was prior, but was the only one that had a tone that didnt hurt my ears.
Should have taken earplugs..

What is wrong with you all? He has all the class and style of a jacuzzi salesman. He is a pit of smug self-satisfaction. The embarrassing uncle of a crap LA hair metal band shredder... The musical equivalent of an 80s sitcom.

Did I mention I don't like him?

Just as well you added that last sentence, else we'd have been lost as to whether it was :thumbup: or :thumbdown:

I'm still waiting on you to tell us how you really feel! :lol:

Lukather was my fave at the Auckland G3. Maybe a bit because I was less familiar with his solo thing, whereas with Vai and Satch I knew what was coming. Or maybe because I admire and aspire to his hair metal uncle 80s sitcom vibe.

You could say for someone with that much talent, he’s never made a definitive solo album. But I should probably listen to his solo albums before saying that.

Anyway, thumbs up. The solo in Olivia Newton John’s “Let’s Get Physical” alone. Perfect 80s hair metal solo in a pop song. And Olivia’s still welcome in my jacuzzi.*




*If I had one.
