According to The Pulse of Radio, Gibson.com has compiled a list of the 10 greatest guitar riffs of the Eighties, or as the site put it, the 10 riffs "we deem the most totally awesome of the (decade)." Included on the list are riffs from acts like RUSH, GUNS N' ROSES, JUDAS PRIEST and AC/DC, along with more surprising inclusions from MICHAEL JACKSON and THE CLASH. The list is on Gibson.com, along with an excerpt from the reason for each. Number 7 on the list is "Beat it" by Michael Jackson, featuring Steve Lukather: "Yes, it had that insane guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen, but the engine driving the song was a weighty bounce by session whiz Steve Lukather."
No upcoming tour dates.
