Most experiments that mix rock with orchestra sound like crap, IMO. The classical makes the rock sound pretentious and the rock makes the classical sound old and dated. BUT, I believe it CAN be done if it\'s treated as a new form of music, rather than Yngwie shredding over baroque strings. It needs to be more symbiotic and I think BH is perfect to do it because of his range of styles and sounds and because his ego won\'t get in the way. But it needs to be written by a VERY contemporary composer, like Danny Elfman or Peter Sculthorpe, that can mix both melodic and dissonant elements, and the guitar needs to blend much better with the orchestra than anything that has been done before so that it\'s not an vehicle for guitar solo, but a musical landscape requiring both parts.
I wish I could write music, because I can hear large portions of the suite in my head. It sounds like a merging of Mussorgsky\'s Night on Bare Mountain with Death Cube K, but about 100 times more intense.
