Is it me, or did Warren never quite get this one right live? Did he even play it in the studio, or was it one of the parts played by Chester Kamen?
Truthfully, Dom does a better job of matching the solo on the single version than WC did, when I compare the 2017 live IDWYL to 1989 Big Live Thing. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of the 90's era (just look at my freaking username), but on this one song, I was always disappointed by how WC played it live.
Let the eruptions begin...don't blame me, blame COVID. And Durantime.
Great discussion! I don't mean to tread on your toes in your own thread, but I thought I'd link to both videos just as the guitar solo is starting, to help people make up their mind.
For the record - I'm undecided as to which sounds more like the original. Warren sounds more authentic at the beginning of the solo, but parts of Dom's sound a little more authentic at the end.
Overall I prefer Warren's version, as it contains more variation. The beginning of Dom's solo is a little repetitive, but I certainly enjoy the ending. Maybe Dom could have even ramped up that ending a little bit more?
Both sound damn good though, and are pretty cool overall .
One question - if parts of a song sound closer to the original studio version - does that necessarily make it better?

After further listening, Warren’s riff is much rocker and intricate. It all depends on how you like your ‘rhythm and the power’ I suppose. However, if you listen he’s a ‘power’ house all the way through. The last 30 seconds when he takes the ‘rhythm’ right to the edge of funk until he can’t go any further is just a delight. Makes you wanna dance all night.
