Have you seen that documentary on metal a few years ago by that kid travelling around? I wish I remembered the name. It was very entertaining and brought back a lot of memories. He covered everything from the early days to the current really hard stuff. Some of the characters are real bad asses. I think I'm scared to go to Scandinavia now!
Not sure exactly which one you are reffering to, cause I've seen a few, maybe it's Metal: A Headbangers Journey?
"Animals" is unreal too, great chops by dave in "dogs."
Best guitarist EVER.
Animals is probably my favorite Floyd, rocks hardest, lesser known, but those who've heard it know how good it is.
I think he's a bit overrated as a guitarist, I get that he plays with good feeling, he could be your favorite, he was mine for awhile, but to say he's the best ever is a stretch, like Blackmore was better at the time for what one could do on the guitar, could maybe even put Gilmour with Townshend, Page, Iommi, Beck, Clapton, Fripp, May too, Hendrix before them all, my personal favorite is maybe Dimebag right now, could also put him in the conversation for best ever.
