George Lynch: signal interview

George Lynch is interviewed by the signal:
Known for his blazing riffs, black-and-blonde hair and leading man good looks, Lynch quickly became a favorite of heavy metal magazines such as “Hit Parader” and “Cream” and some might argue, the star of the band. He and Dokken clashed almost immediately on a personal level, though Lynch acknowledged the singer’s determination and business acumen helped take them to a higher level of fame.

“Sometimes, someone may not be as talented musically, but is such a shameless self-promoter that they can really get the band’s name out there. In hindsight, I appreciate that. Because who cares how good you are if no one knows about you?” Lynch said.

Dokken’s second album, “Tooth and Nail,” was released in 1984, and went platinum on the strength of songs like “Just Got Lucky,” the power-ballad “Alone Again” and “Into the Fire.” The band decided to film a video for the latter while touring with Dio in Hawaii.

In addition to concert footage, they wanted to get pickup shots of Lynch’s guitar solo atop an active volcano. The result was something out of “Spinal Tap.”

“We were up there for so long that seismic activity developed. Everyone else had left the park, but we were so off the beaten path, we didn’t know,” Lynch said. “Steam started coming up, it was hard to breathe. Then my shoes broke through lava crust to the hot magma underneath. I could feel the heat and thought to myself, ‘Is this normal?’”

Lynch played on. As dusk came and the shoot was ending, rangers came to warn the group that needed to leave immediately. They were on the plane when the volcano blew — the camera crew spent an hour circling the eruption for extra footage.

Mario Parga: shows of the hand built MP guitar from vegas guitars


This is one sweet sounding guitar in the hands of Mario Parga! Mario Parga says:
Mario Parga at the Vegas Guitars Custom Shop, Las Vegas, NV on February 18th 2009 playing the finished prototype of the Vegas Guitars' 'Mario Parga Signature' guitar.

Vegas Guitars' & Fender Gold Custom Shop master luthier Neil 'Smitty' Smith watches and listens in the background to the sonic qualities of this amazing guitar (Neil personally hand makes ALL Vegas Guitar's 'Mario Parga Signature' guitars).

Mario plays the guitar through a Peavey Classic 30, with just reverb, a Boss DS-1 distortion pedal and Boss CS-3 compressor pedal. Some of the licks he plays are purposely similar to compare tonal variation. The Rio Grande pickups are installed in the finished instrument, providing outstanding clarity, definition and warmth to the guitar.

Mattias IA Eklundh: blog update

Mattias IA Eklundh posted a new freak kitchen blog post... Mattias IA Eklundh says:
Hey there! Hope you are all good wherever you are despite times of financial doom and whatnot. Everything is splendid here, I am afraid to say. Sitting in Munich about to get on a plane to Milan in a few minutes.

Five clinics in Italy coming up, arranged by the great Mogar company, the Italian distributor of Laney amplification. Did a bunch of clinics here in Germany the other week and had a great time meeting and playing for all the cool people showing up in Berlin, Hamburg, Witten and Brilon (crazy/passionate campers Jochen and Andrei drove some 800 kilometers to hook up. Gee…) Will be back in Germany soon again at the mighty Frankfurt Messe as well as a few more clinics here and there. I dig doing clinics. It keeps you focused and is a fine way to get out there and play when Freak Kitchen is gearing up for future concerts but not in actual touring frenzy. Now I am not going to write the word clinic again.
