(please add other questions)
I believe it is the solo from the Dead at the end of “Dark Star (Alligator).” It is the longest solo in any song. That is what I believe the toughest solo is.
What is one of your favorite albums?
I think that one of my favorite albums is Thin Lizzy. It certainly is a great songwriter with great tunes.
What’s another song you’d like to hear a guitar solo on?
I don’t like any of my songs sung. My favourite guitar solo, from any one of my songs, was on “The Dead.” It’s a great song. I would love to be able to sing. I think my main problem is that every time I sing the guitar solo, I feel that the song I’m singing is not singing. It’s just me trying to sing what I want the song to be. I’m very nervous about singing with my throat because it’s very tender. I don’t sing well enough to use my vocal chords for the bass guitar, or even to use my mandolin. So, I have to just do the best I can and hope that he’s okay with it.
Have you ever taken your guitar solo into the studio to try and record it?
Yes, on the song “Tiger Rag.” It was written for me by Tom Petty. I’ve done the guitar solo on “American Girl.” I have not taken the guitar solo into the studio.
Do you have any band mates?
If I was still a rockstar, I would say that there’s not much in the way of guitar players in my band. One of the guys is a guitar prodigy, he’s got great rhythm and a good style of playing. The other guy is very good with the guitar. But he is always too busy to play guitar like I do.
In your opinion, what’s the best guitar solo you’ve seen on TV?
“You Are What You Is.” It’s a terrific guitar solo. It’s a fantastic guitar solo from Bob Dylan.
Where can fans of your songs turn to for more information?
I suppose the best place to go is http://www.sgtmarvelmusic.com. I’ll add a section to the home page that explains the history of the band, what makes a Marvel story great, how the band got started, etc.
