Bring Back Twin Lead Guitars!

I have often said, to anyone that will listen, that the three things most lacking in rock’n’roll music today are harmony vocals, organs (especially real Hammond organs), and twin lead guitars.  The first two are heard more often, but twin lead guitars have almost disappeared from the modern music scene.  Off the top of my head, Dr. Dog is one of the few current bands that sometimes features a twin lead guitar attack.  It’s a great sound, and it’s a shame that it isn’t heard more.  The halcyon days for twin leads was the early 70’s, featured in such bands as The Allman Brothers, Wishbone Ash, and Thin Lizzy, among others, not to mention the great work of Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter on Lou Reed’s classic live LP, “Rock and Roll Animal”.  So come on, rockers of today, start working on it and let’s bring back the twin lead guitar attack!http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2po6qBSWbw
