Speranza is the sentimental favorite, but I vote for Forrester.

I have to say I enjoy all eras, including the new kid.

Having said that, tough not to go with Guy. I love those early albums.

I don't think sentiment has anything to do with it. Both Guy and Rhett died early, tragic deaths. But Guy sang on one of the greatest rock records ever, Fire Down Under, so he gets my vote. They did some cool stuff with Rhett but never approached FDU heights again...

Yeah definitely Speranza. The successors aren't bad, it's just they stand in a long shadow. Like every Ozzy guitarist after Randy.

Rhett Forrester is the correct answer.

This plus 'Narita' and 'Rock City' are also great records. As good as Rhett was, he cant match the early Riot.

With that said, Rhett was a better front-man imo.

I kind of like Guy's vibe...he seems like maybe if one of the guys from the Warriors had a band...

That's him. I also had Born in America, which I thought was a really good album.

Swords and Tequila motherfuckers

I blasted Fire Down Under so many time Speranza is the only answer for me. My youngest son is playing a lot of my old vinyl and he was so intrigued by the Narita cover he gave it a spin. He only thought it was OK though :) Road Racin' is another excellent tune.

I like them all. But Guy for me. This thread made me re-listen all of the old Riot's this morning. Thank you!
