    I was 13 when this song came out and I fell in love with this solo right away. Still one of the most memorable guitar solos. And it wasn't until these days that it became clear to me that this was played by Louie Shelton, he is the man. Here is my version of the subject.

    Very nice rendition and I agree, Louie (Louie) Shelton is amazing both with The Wrecking Crew and his own works.

    Great job! One of my first favorite songs as a kid was Running with the Night, so I can relate to some Lionel Richie love.

    Well done. I was watching a Norm Rare Guitars YouTube video a little while ago and they had Louie Shelton at the store, a very long musical repertoire that's for sure. He does mention the Lionel Hello solo at the 4:54
