"who are the brain police?"
From the Ministry of Silly Walks, no doubt.
I always thought that John played the solo on Revolution. It doesn't sound like George and it's certainly not Paul. I seem to remember the film they did for (probably) Top of the Pops on the BBC showed John 'playing' the solo.
...sure made me smile!
You know, Al is right...Johns fairly punked out guitar part in The End is pretty cool, but he does play lead on Revolution and it's the same style. For the record, Lennon also plays alternate lines on the 1965 Beatles hit, I Feel Fine...the part where the lines switch tone...I have seen videos of him playing slide style...he was pretty good, but he is probably one of the greatest classic Rhythm players of all time.There is an early instrumental composition credited to Harrison/Lennon called Cry For A Shadow...pretty cool 1963 rock guitar interplay.
I always thought that was Clapton or George playing that solo.
ahh, lodo, you are correct as well...there are three distinctly different guitar voices...clapton takes a few bars, harrison is pretty unmistakable, but John does the kind of punky grungy noise stuff...I said it was only 15 seconds....
The Wikipedia article on the "the end" quotes an interview Lennon gave to Rolling Stone in 1970, in which he says, "There's a nice little bit I played on Abbey Road. Paul gave us each a piece, a little break where Paul plays, George plays and I play." It sounds to me like they this sequence of soloists repeats until they have each played three times.
