Steve Lynch: turn up the radio!

Back to the 1980's, make my hair bouffant, put on the Lycra strides... hey Steel Panther! No this is Autograph with guitarist Steve Lynch. I have seen Steve Lynch at a clinic in Cardiff UK, inspirde by this song!

Autograph's debut single from 1984, "Turn Up the Radio", from their debut album, "Sign In Please". The single had heavy rotation on MTV and peaked at #29 on the Billboard 100. It was the band's only major hit. Back in the '80s this tune along with Loverboy's "Working For the Weekend" ended up becoming popular friday drive-time songs.

I'd like to thank Daniele for being such an awesome guy and for giving me his string dampener and plec!! But i'd also like to say thankyou to all the guys at LIMS and guitar idol.

Daniele Gottardo picks a PRS guitar prize in guitar idol
I managed to have lunch with Daniele Gottardo and his family and friends. It was great to meet him again after last years guitar idol final. After lunch he went over to the lick library stand and prepared to play his guitar idol final track live. To prepare Daniele gave everyone a treat by warming up working over some new ideas like behind the nut bends. This guy is awesome, so it's no surprise that Daniele Gottardo just won the guitar idol, Steve Vai prize! I know Daniel will be over the moon and he deserves it!

After playing Cardiology, Stuart Bull asked Daniele if he had any more backing tracks, but he only had the guitar idol track. So Stuart just got out Lick Library jam track and put it in the players... the result is what you see here... Enjoy!
