Is this the greatest synth performance in the history of rock?
This video captures a classic 1973 rock synth jam by the Edgar Winter Group, a live performance of the classic Frankenstein.
With this performance, Edgar Winter proves that he does not discriminate when it comes to face-melting solos.
First, he unleashes an epic stream of keytar-controlled synth awesomeness. Then Winter takes a break from the synths for a face-melting sax solo. Then – it’s time for a drum solo – and Winter delivers, trading riffs with the drummer.
Then it’s back to the keytar for some synth-faced shredding. Then comes an orgy of noise that transforms into an explosion of filthy filtered synth eruptions. Winter delivers the denouement by returning to the drums for the restatement of the intro.
Greatest synth performance in the history of rock, though?
