He is always aware of what's going on here.

I have most of those solos in-bedded into my memory. just wish I could play them.

Elliott is way under rated. Such a talent and obviously a gentleman.

The Cars at Nassau Coliseum in 1980 (openers: XTC) was my first concert. I got married in 1988 and a week or so before had my bachelor party. At some point during the festivities we ended up at the Rock N Roll Cafe on Bleecker St. in NYC. I don't remember why, maybe a cover charge, but we decided not to go in. We somehow found out that Elliot Easton was there and talked the doorman into letting me in to meet him. I was escorted to a room in the back where EE sat at a table alone. We exchanged greetings and a little small talk and I told him that I thought he was the most underrated guitarist in rock and roll. I still think that. He signed a business card I happened to have in my wallet. Haven't seen it in a while but it's somewhere. Very nice guy and that brief meeting made the night.

As soon as I saw the thread, I got this song in my head and too love the solo. Elliot's playing is so diverse in style and very exciting.
