    Hard Rock Instrumentals - Got Any?

    I'm talking about something like this:



    I do know of a few. Jimmy Page had a couple good ones on his solo album and of course Jeff Beck had more than his share. I think Pat Travers had one or two. But there has to be a lot more.

    I've always liked BTO's 'Free Wheelin'.

    Deep Purple's 'And The Address' and 'Wring That Neck', I guess.

    You mean like this?

    Warning/notice: this is nothing like the rest of the album

    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    Or this, if you prefer, but the former is harder, IMO.

    re Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush's World Anthem,

    Frank actually intended it to be an actual "world anthem", he wrote lyrics to it, and included a lyric sheet with the original LP release that translated said lyrics into various languages. Apparently, though, CBS refused to include a Russian translation because, ya know, they were "The Evil Empire" or whatever. And then, after a few pressings, they dropped the lyric sheet altogether.

    Pretty much anything Steve Morse has done solo. And "Memory Crash" by Steve Stevens is a great album.
    Chris Poland's "Return to Metalopolis" rocks, and Blues Saraceno put out a trio of kickass bluesy rockin' albums in the 80s.
