    Definite, there will also be a lot of songs where they don't seem to be indispensable or detracted from the music, and that is traumatic. I consider though, in the late 60s and early 70s, we also had a number of just dangerous solos ---- it would were ok if the solo had really been good. Additionally, repeatedly they were too long. Unless its a jam band like the Grateful useless, Phish, Alllman's, and so forth., a 10 to 15 minute solo ain't needed. I was once talkin to a guy once and he said, "punk did not react to there being various guitar solos --- it's that there have been quite a few unhealthy solos."
