RADIOHEAD's JONNY GREENWOOD: "I've Always Hated Guitar Solos"

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood shared his disdain towards guitar solos, explaining to Rolling Stone:

“When we were at school, we hated and distrusted anything that was successful on a large scale.

“We just associated it with bands that did guitar solos with big hair. It’s already such a preening, self-regarding profession.

“I’ve always hated guitar solos.

“There’s nothing worse than hearing someone cautiously going up and down the scales of their guitar.

“You can hear them thinking about what the next note should be, and then out it comes. It’s more interesting to write something that doesn’t outstay its welcome.”
