Paul Gilbert: metal assault interview

Andrew: When people talk about The Doors, it's always about Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, and hardly anyone talks about the guitar riffs. Do you agree that guitarists of the earlier times are often underrated just because their riffs weren't exactly "complex"?
Paul: Yeah, sometimes complex things will catch the attention of musicians more. But I think a lot more people have heard the guitar intro to "Roadhouse Blues" than any Allan Holdsworth song. I think there is room for both in this world. I would be very sad if only one kind of music were allowed. more
