As the song says, "oh yeah! alright!"

You're up.

Sorry guys, someone else go ahead and post a riff. I've got a lot of stuff going on right now and I won't be able to anytime soon.

I can hear the lyrics to the song, just can't remember the band name. :oops:

The band that made the song famous is best known for their guitar player.

The guy who wrote the song was a guitar player for another band. (He also recorded the tune for a solo album.)

The guy who sang the song (for the band that made the song famous) was not the band's original singer.

The band's former singer didn't play guitar, but is well known for his finger moves.

The band's name might remind you of Joseph's coat, though the guitarist's former band was of a deeper hue.

Lol, Gabba, you win the 'Convoluted Clues of the Year' award. :)
I think I've got the band, but I don't know the song.
If I think I'll have time to post a riff, I'll go hunting...

First couple of seconds, I thought it was Scorpion's Rock you Like a Hurricane.

Great clues that took some hard thinking!

Hope nobody minds if I post something to get this puppy rollin'

Should be pretty easy for you guys...

One chord is fine.
Two you're pushing it.
Three and you're into jazz.
