    Shouldn't we start an online poll or something to "FORCE" them to play it live?

    Sure as hell they should play it. They haven't done so for a long time now.

    Even if they did play it live, they still wouldn't play the best part about it, the guitar solo.

    Do Bjorn and Jesper even like that solo? I'm sure Bjorn and Jesper are good enough guitar players to play that solo...

    That is correct. If they could play it, then they would have played it in the 1996 shows, however, they didn't, but they replaced it with a new riff instead.

    Yeah, one can clearly see that in the Koln '96 concert video.

    But anyway...even without the solo it is a great piece of music.

    Frankly, rather have them play really old stuff like Stand Ablaze...although they don't play Artifacts of the Black Rain enough (enough being 2 or 3 times a show). Honestly, if In Flames were to do a comprehensive setlist of all their best work the concert would be about 3 hours long...

    No man.. the solo in December Flower is THE song.

    That said, i wonder how In Flames would sound if they every song they wrote had solos and technical guitar stuff. Probably really awesome.

    I've always liked The Jester Race more than December Flower. Both are awesome though.

    That solo is pretty hard, based on the solo stuff bjorn and jesper do and the level on technique they have i must say they probably cant cut it live.

    I'd rather hear Dead Eternity. Upon an Oaken Throne would be nice

    Actually, I think Bjorn could play that solo live if he wanted. I'm a guitarist, and I have noticed that he has improved his picking a lot in the last few years. He's definitely got the skills to do it. However, I think he doesn't even care to learn it because he didn't compose it. I wouldn't dare play it live if I were him.
