Spotted on the google news ether:
Australian guitarist to perform at farewell... THE blonde guitarist who featured in the final video of Michael Jackson rehearsing before his death has been revealed as an Adelaide girl.full news article
Orianthi Panagaris, of Hawthorn, has told of her devastation over the King of Pop's death late last month, the Sunday Mail reports.
The South Australian-born musician, who is known professionally as Orianthi, will perform at Jackson's public memorial on Wednesday.
She said she had grown close to the superstar since joining his This Is It comeback tour and features prominently in the video of Jackson's final Los Angeles rehearsal, recorded two days before his death, that has been shown extensively around the world.
"He had this wonderful aura about him, a beautiful spirit," Orianthi said yesterday.
"It's been a surreal time working with him and it's devastating what's happened."
Orianthi, 24, was a key part of the concert marathon, which was to have begun in London on July 13.
She had been rehearsing with Jackson six days a week for the past three months.
Jackson can be seen dancing with her during the song They Don't Care About Us as she plays an intricate guitar solo.
"We practised so much and knew the songs so well," she said.
"Because we rehearsed so much . . . we knew the parts like the back of our hands," she said.
For Orianthi, the chance to play with one of the world's greatest-ever entertainers was a major coup. "It was so surreal, I'm a big fan," she said.

Buddy Blaze says:
Matthew James Webster "Matt Blaze" "Matt Webster" "Webs" was born in Ames Iowa to proud Parents Buddy and Joyce on January 22, 1978. His father went on to become well known in the music community for his handmade guitars for the stars and for his famous guitar designs. Matt grew up surrounded by the worlds most famous artists and was universally loved by all of them. Along the way, Matt fell in love with Sarah L. and they brought his beautiful son Evan into the world. That was 8 (and 1/2...) years ago. Matt was a computer prodigy and helped those within his reach. Matt also often helped Mom and Dad make Buddy Blaze guitars and Ukuleles in their shop in Kailua Kona, HI. Matt spent the last years of his life on the Big Island where he could be found on the beaches, snorkeling, canoeing, sailing and enjoying the gifts that come with living in Hawai'i... Matt also suffered with the disease of addiction. He spent more than 6 months of the last year of his life in residential treatment... He fought this disease with all he (and we...) had. He actually spent the last 3 days of his life volunteering and encouraging others with their struggles... Matt was an all American boy that was the center of his parents life... Matt lost his struggle with addiction and died on March 2nd, 2009. This site begins to tell Matt's story. Joyce and Buddy will start an official website very soon and will also create a foundation in his memory and honor to help others deal with the struggles of this horrible disease... Please help us tell Matt's story and help others... Thanks and aloha! Buddy Blazemore details

Video response by Ten-Foot-Tryptych from the MonkeyLordForum.
Coolidge Amplification's new Outlandish all tube amp is taking the guitar world by storm.
For the record, the sounds were produced on a Behringer V-amp (the only amp I have!) and the pencil was not wasted; I had two, cut one and so it just appeared that I was wasting it. The hair was not mine. The sweater was given to me a few years ago, I'm glad I had a suitable opportunity to wear it.
Apologies to Andy at Pro Guitar Shop, I hope you take this in good spirit
