LOL I don't have any Megadeth bootlegs, but I can always look around and find some. I think that Chris is amazing. I've been hooked on Peace Sells for like two weeks now. Just an extremely gifted individual. Glad to see other guys dig Chris' stuff. He was in Guitar World magazine a few issues ago which was cool to see.

yea both the solos were mustaines.. but poland did a little solo in the middle.. i just love the way he phrases the notes.. i think its something to do with some injury he got on his hand.. i read somewhere that his index finger on his fretting hand cant move properly, forcing him to play in a unique way..

I'm a huge Magadeth fan, but lean toward the Marty Friedman solos.
Poland still is great though, and contributed to Megadeth's new album, The System Has Failed.
A good album in my opinion.
Give it a try!

Chris was excellent in megadeth, really liked his playing alot, in fact, I prefer that incarnation of Megadeth to all others.

That said, I bought one of his solo records "return to metalopolis"...........and to this day, I hang onto it as a reminder to never purchase anything he ever does in the future again.

Don't know what happened to the chris poland that I used to like..............
