@Lordyaswas,
Somewhat similar in their approach (better musicians) around that same era,
were the Nashville Tweens with their biggest hit - as witnessed here:

@Lordyaswas,

@Setanta,
Actually, that's not true as Patrick Moraz, the keyboardist, was classically trained. Originally, the keyboard player of Yes (replacing Rick Wakeman), he joined Moody Blues around 1978, replacing Mike Pinder.

As they were one of (if not the first) the first popular rock groups to record with a classical orchestra, it's an easy stretch to think there was more members of the group who were classically trained.

@Ragman,
The statement was not an absolute statement, it was a comparative statement.

@Setanta,
I understand. I wasn't intending as criticism of your statement. I merely was attempting to add something additional I had just learned as a result of poking into researching the subject because of curiosity.

This Eagles song, perhaps their best known, has a double guitar lead from Don Felder and Joe Walsh.

Before joining the Eagles, Joe Walsh was the heart and sould of The James Gang. This is an excellent example of his work.

Ricky Nelson (son of big band stars Ozzie and Harriet Nelson) plays his own acoustic rhythm--but the influential guitar solo in this song is by James Burton.

He was such an amazing influence on popular music and early Rock & Roll - just ask the Beatles:
